HC Deb 06 April 1922 vol 152 c2454W

asked the Minister of Health, if he is aware that demolition of slum property, unfit for habitation, has been followed by the reception of the former occupants in Dartford infirmary owing to the shortage of houses in that area; and whether he is now able to resume the building programme promised in 1918?


I am aware of the shortage of houses in the district and since the beginning of this year approval has been given to erecting or obtaining tenders for 28 houses in the Dartford Urban District and 66 houses in the rural district.
