§ Mr. HIGHAM
asked the Minister of Health what progress has been made in re-housing in the borough of Islington?
§ Dr. ADDISON
Two schemes which contemplate the provision of 280 new tenement dwellings have recently been submitted by the borough council, and it is understood that a third scheme for the provision of 112 dwellings is under their consideration. Four hundred and thirty-six houses have been inspected with a view to ascertaining whether they would be suitable for conversion into flats, and 155 of these houses are regarded as suitable. Arrangements have already been made for the conversion of twenty-two houses which will provide seventy-seven flats, and plans for the conversion of another block of houses, are at present being prepared by the borough council.
