§ Miss BONDFIELD
asked the Minister of Health the number of houses temporarily secured for overcrowded cases under the 1925 Act in the Metropolitan boroughs of Marylebone, Chelsea, Fulham, Paddington, and Southwark, respectively?
The only information of the nature apparently desired by the hon. Member in my possession is that, under arrangements between the borough councils and the London County Council, the following numbers of cases of overcrowding and special hardship have, independently of cases taken from the waiting list of the county council in the ordinary course, been accommodated in houses on the estates of the county council:
Marylebone 278 Chelsea 154 Fulham 412 Paddington 336 Southwark 520
