§ 48. Mr. DAY
asked the Minister of Health the number of houses in the borough of Southwark which are regarded as suitable for demolition under the slum clearance schemes; whether he has any statistics of the number of persons that are housed in these properties; and can he give particulars of any existing schemes either by the London County Council or the Southwark Borough Council for dealing with the housing conditions in certain portions of this borough?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
The reply to the first two parts of the question is in the negative. No specific proposals are yet before me, but the London County Council propose in the next five years to clear areas comprising 321 houses, and the borough council to clear areas comprising 46 houses and to demolish 67 further houses. The estimated total number of persons to be displaced is 3,150.
