HC Deb 19 May 1938 vol 336 c587W
Mr. Poole

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the insanitary housing conditions and unsatisfactory water facilities prevailing in the miners' houses at Middle Row, Canal Row, and Back Row, Hampstead Village, Great Barr; and whether he will take the matter up with the local authority concerned with a view to the necessary action being taken to improve these conditions?

Mr. Elliot

I understand that the colliery company who own the houses in question will demolish them as soon as they have made their arrangements, which are already in an advanced stage, for the building of new houses sufficient to re-house the displaced tenants.
