HC Deb 22 March 1926 vol 193 c905W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health if he can give any details about Government plans for the clearing of shuns in the Metropolitan borough of Southwark?


Schemes for the clearance of insanitary areas are initiated by the local authorities on the representation of the medical officer of health. The only scheme affecting areas in the borough of Southwark which is at present before me is the China Walk, etc., scheme of the London County Council. That council's Tabard Street (Southwark) scheme is nearing completion, and I understand that another area in the borough has been under consideration.
