HC Deb 31 July 1925 vol 187 cc845-6W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the medical officer of health for the Metropolitan Borough of Southwark, in his last annual report, states that overcrowding is still the outstanding feature of the borough; and, in view of this fact, will he state what steps are being taken by the local authority concerned to deal with this matter?


Yes, Sir. The difficulty in Southwark is to obtain land for housing, but I hope that the large schemes being carried out by the London County Council will relieve the pressure in the central boroughs.
