§ 37. Mr. Shinwell
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many houses in the area covered by the Parliamentary division of Easington are due for demolition; and what estimate he will give for the completion of the work involved.
§ Mr. MacColl
Four years ago the Easington Rural District Council said that there were 1,975 unfit houses in the Parliamentary division, since when they have demolished or closed nearly 300. On these figures there are still nearly 1,700 to deal with, and the council hope to clear them all within the next 10 years.
