HC Deb 19 February 1931 vol 248 c1473W

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?


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.
