Section 95 of the Public Health (London) Act 1936, were issued of

INSPECTIONS:
Regular house to house inspections have been carried out during
the last five years mainly in connection with plans and proposals for
slum clearance Due to the interval in the programme necessitated by
the difficulties of rehousing following the representation of the
large King Square area, and to the depletion of staff, the number of
inspections namely 26„ was however lower in 1960 than in previous
years. The tabular statement prepared in accordance with the Housing
Consolidated Regulations 1925-32 is as follows:-

habitation.
