HC Deb 22 July 1926 vol 198 c1435W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health the number of dwellings to be proceeded with by the London County Council on the Tabard Street, Southwark, clearance and rebuilding scheme; the number of such dwellings that have been completed; and when may it be expected that the remainder will be completed?


The Order confirming the scheme, to which the hon. Member refers, required the provision of rehousing accommodation for 2,580 persons, and accommodation has already been provided for 2,388 persons in 424 tenement dwellings erected on the area. By an amending Order dated the 10th July last the number of persons to be rehoused was increased by 1,000, and I think that the hon. Member may be assured that no time will be lost by the London County Council in completing the amended scheme.
