§ Mr. GIBBINS
asked the Minister of Health the number of slum-clearance schemes that have been submitted from the city of Liverpool during the last 12 months; the number of schemes approved by the Ministry; the number of tenants likely to be dispossessed under such schemes; the number of tenants to be rehoused; the suggested type of dwelling; and the estimated cost?
§ Sir K. WOOD
During the past 12 months, no new schemes have been submitted by the City Council, but they have been engaged in carrying out the schemes for which approval had already been obtained, which involve the displacement of 3,308 persons and the provision of alternative accommodation for the same number. As an instalment of this scheme, plans for the erection of 101 tenements at an estimated cost of £64,922 have been approved during the past year and a further 250 tenements are to be taken in hand in the next few months. I understand that the council have under consideration the making of a scheme with regard to another large central area.
