HL Deb 31 July 1912 vol 12 c800

This Motion is the result of a debate which took place the other day on a Motion by my noble friend Lord Stanhope, a debate in which the noble Earl behind me (Lord Beauchamp) took part and in which it was suggested that a Select Committee should be set up in the autumn to deal with this matter. This is the formal Motion setting up the Select Committee, which, if your Lordships agree to it, will be followed by the moving of the names of the members to constitute the Select Committee soon after we reassemble in the autumn.

Moved, That a Select Committee be appointed to consider and report whether it is desirable to enable purchasers under the Lands Clauses Acts to take advantage of procedure under the Housing Working Working Classes Acts, 1890, in acquiring of any insanitary property for the purposes of their undertaking.—(The Earl of Donoughmore.)

On Question, Motion agreed to, and ordered accordingly.
