HC Deb 11 December 1956 vol 562 c25W
49 and 50. Mrs. Slater

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) how many of his Department's inspectors are engaged in inquiring into slum clearance schemes;

(2) how many additional inspectors he estimates are required for slum clearance schemes.

Mr. Powell

There are engaged on inquiries into slum clearance orders the equivalent of 25 full-time inspectors. It is hoped to recruit at least 20 more housing and planning inspectors during the next few weeks, and a substantial proportion of these will be engaged on slum clearance inquiries.
