§ Colonel ENGLAND
asked the Minister of Health whether he is considering the amendment of Section 46 of the Housing 551W Act, 1925, with a view to removing injustices to certain owners of properties in slum areas; and, if so, what action he proposes to take?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
Yes, Sir. I hope to be able to introduce legislation on this subject, but I am unable at present to give any indication of the date of its introduction.
§ Sir H. FOSTER
asked the Minister of Health whether he has now found some new basis of compensation for the owners of sanitary property taken under clearance schemes for new housing which would be fairer than the, present one; and when the necessary legislation will be introduced?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
The question of an Amendment in some respects of the present basis of compensation has been receiving my attention, but I am not yet in a position to say when it will be possible to introduce legislation on the subject.
