§ Mr. WHITE
asked the Minister of Health the number of slum clearance schemes that have been submitted to and approved by him since the passage of the Housing Act, 1930; and whether he is satisfied that adequate progress is being made in this respect?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
One hundred and seven areas have been declared to be clearance areas. These declarations do not require my approval. Although considerable progress has been made, I am not yet prepared to say whether I am satisfied that it is, on the whole, adequate.
