HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 c256W

asked the hon. Member for Carlisle, as representing the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, whether any arrangements have been arrived at between the Ecclesiastical Commissioners and the London County Council with the view to the demolition of insanitary areas the property of the Commissioners, within the County of London, and which have been condemned under the Housing of the Working Classes Act, 1919?


The Ecclesiastical Commissioners, in co-operation with the London County Council, are endeavouring to formulate a joint scheme for the clearance and re-development, by the erection of dwellings for the working classes, of an area in Lambeth now occupied by old and more or less worn-out cottages. The property has not been condemned by the local authority.
