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