asked the Minister of Health how many slum clearance schemes were scheduled in 1939; how many are scheduled to date; and what progress is being made.

1,460 clearance areas covering 23,479 houses were declared in 1939 making a total from 1933 up to the outbreak of the war of 21,710 areas covering 296,311 houses. Further clearance areas will be dealt with as soon as the prior needs of families without separate homes makes this course possible.
