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.
