HC Deb 10 July 1919 vol 117 c2050W

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?


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.
