HC Deb 13 April 1927 vol 205 c373W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that more than 1,000 cellar dwellings still exist within the city of Liverpool; and the reasons why legislation passed in 1908 for the abolition of these cellar dwellings has not been put into operation?


If the hon. Member is referring to cellar still in occupation as dwellings, the information before my right hon. Friend does not confirm the suggestion made in the first part of the question. It is understood that the Corporation take the necessary steps to deal with any cellars found to be occupied as dwellings.
