§ 73. Mr. PARKER
asked the Minister of Health how many local authorities have concluded their surveys of overcrowding under the 1935 Housing Act; and whether he will give, for each authority reporting the number of families in its area, the number surveyed and the number living in overcrowded conditions?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
Local authorities are required to submit to my right hon. Friend the results of their surveys before 1st June. Up to the present he has received statistical reports from 34 authorities. These reports cover 125,180 dwellings, of which 4,087 were found to be overcrowded. I will send the hon. Member the particulars relating to each authority.
