§ Mr. GILBERT
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to a block of artisan dwellings in Glengall Road, Camberwell, which has been closed up and empty for some years; and whether, in view of the shortage of housing accommodation in the district, he can take any steps by which these dwellings can be reopened and let to tenants?
§ Major ASTOR
My right hon. Friend understands that the premises to which378W the hon. Member refers have been empty for fifteen years and are in a very dilapidated condition. It seems probable that these are premises with which the borough council may be able to deal under the powers to be conferred by the Housing Bill, and my right hon. Friend will communicate with the council on the subject.
