HC Deb 28 April 1938 vol 335 cc296-7
46. Colonel Nathan

asked the Minister of Health which local authorities in England and Wales have passed resolutions declaring areas to be proposed re-development areas under the provisions of Section 34 of the Housing Act, 1936; and the stages reached in these various cases?

Sir K. Wood

As the answer contains the names of a number of places, I will, with the hon. and gallant Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

Resolutions declaring areas to be proposed re-development areas have been passed by the London County Council, the metropolitan borough councils of Fulham and Paddington, the borough councils of Bangor, Birmingham, Croydon (two areas), Harrogate, Heston and Isleworth, Liverpool (seven areas), Lowestoft and Norwich, and the urban district councils of Brierley Hill and Castleford. I have approved the plans of four of these areas and withheld approval of one. Six have been the subject of inquiries, the reports upon which are under consideration or awaited, two have been withdrawn, while procedure with the others has not yet reached the stage at which inquiry can be directed.
