HC Deb 14 December 1922 vol 159 cc3196-7W

asked the Minister of Labour, as representing the Ministry of Health, whether there are any towns in the country, and, if so, which, which have not organised to the full extent, consonant with their financial resources, the various legislative Measures enabling them to deal with the housing evils; what action the Ministry has taken in these cases; and whether, as a result, any remedial measures have been adopted?


The extent of the activities of local authorities in dealing with the housing problem in their areas has necessarily varied with the different circumstances of the authorities, but I think it will be generally agreed that local authorities have, during the last two or three years, made very great efforts to deal with this difficult problem.
