HC Deb 06 May 1924 vol 173 cc247-8W

asked the Minister of Health how many tenement dwellings have recently been erected by the London County Council on their White Hart Lane estate, Tottenham; how many more it is proposed to erect; whether the approval of the Tottenham Urban District Council has been asked for or given; and if he will withhold his consent to the erection of any further buildings of this kind until he has held an inquiry into the financial results of this policy upon an already poor locality?


Buildings containing 72 tenements are nearing completion, and approval has been given to the erection of 138 further tenement dwellings. Plans of new buildings require the approval of the district council under bye-laws, and this approval has been given in the case of the 72 dwellings which are under construction. My right hon. Friend has not received any representations in the sense of the last part of the question.
