HC Deb 29 March 1938 vol 333 c1843W
Mr. D. Somerville

asked the Minister of Health whether, taking the different boroughs in the Greater London area, he will state the extent to which overcrowding under the Housing Act of 1935 has now been actually reduced in each case?

Sir K. Wood

Medical Officers of Health are required to report annually on the abatement of overcrowding in their areas. Their reports for the year 1937 are not yet available, but I will furnish my hon. Friend with the information he seeks when I am in possession of it.
