HC Deb 12 November 1928 vol 222 c512W

asked the Minister of Health if he can now make any statement as to the intentions of his Department to introduce legislation in favour of the grant of reasonable compensation to owners of habitable house property which may be included in slum clearance schemes?


It is the intention of the Government to introduce, at the earliest practicable moment, legislation dealing with slum areas, which will provide for an amendment in certain respects of Section 46 of the Housing Act, 1925.
