HC Deb 22 March 1929 vol 226 c1981W

asked the Minister of Health the amount of money that has been expended in slum-clearance schemes during the past five years and the amount of loans that have been sanctioned by the Ministry in connection with the acquisition of property for re-housing during the same period?


On the information available from local authorities, it is estimated that the amount of capital expenditure on slum clearance schemes in the last five years is roughly £5,250,000. The loans for this purpose sanctioned by my Department during the same period amount to £3,162,952; this sum does not include loans sanctioned by Parliament for the county of London.
