§ Mr. CLOUGH
asked the Minister of Health whether, since the Housing Bill is designed to deal with slums, he is collecting a list of the worst slum property in London and elsewhere; whether he proposes to publish it; and what action he is taking to stimulate the local authorities to deal with this evil at once?
§ Dr. ADDISON
The Housing Bill contains special provisions relating to slum areas. Information on, the subject is being obtained, and I will consider what Report should be issued on the matter. I may add that a Manual is now being prepared which will contain definite directions how to deal with slum areas and unfit houses.
