(The figures in brackets are those for 1960),
In addition many transfers within Council property took place, in
order to make the best use of existing accommodation, and some were
rehoused by private owners.
In only one case were legal proceedings instituted for alleged
offences against the Housing Acts, and that was in 1959 in respect of
the use of basement rooms in contravention of a Closing Order. The
summons was adjourned sine die to enable the owner to complete works
to render the rooms fit.
