HL Deb 16 November 1932 vol 85 c1364

THE LORD BISHOP OF WINCHESTER had the following Notice on the Paper: To ask His Majesty's Government for information—

  1. 1. As to what steps have been taken by local authorities in England and Wales under the Housing Act, 1930, to deal with (a) clearance areas; (b) improvement areas; and (c) individual insanitary houses;
  2. 2. As to the steps proposed to be taken to provide houses which can be let at rents within the means of the poorer members of the working classes;
And to move for Papers.

The right rev. Prelate said: My Lords, at this late hour I do not propose to move this Resolution to-night, especially as I understand that a number of noble Lords desire to take part in the debate. I propose to put the Notice down for as early a date as possible in the next Session, and I understand that Thursday of next week will probably be a free day.
