Vestry of the Hamlet of Mile End Old Town
Vestry Hall, Bancroft Road, Mile End Road, E.
June 25th, 1890.
To the Vestry of the Hamlet of Mile End Old Town.
Gentlemen,
Re 19, Knott Street.
I have considered the report of the Medical Officer
of Health referred to me at your meeting held on the 11th
day of June, in respect of the house and premises known
as 19, Knott Street, under the provisions of the Artizans
and Labourers' Dwellings' Act, 1868.
The complaint contained in the said report of the
Medical Officer of Health is—
That the walls of the house are very damp.
The floor boards are defective.
The staircase is defective.
The cause of the complaint is the age of the house and
the original defective construction.
The remedy for the complaint contained in the said
report of the Medical Officer of Health is to insert a
damp proof course in the walls of the said house. To
repair the flooring boards and to repair the treads and
risers and other portions of the staircase.
If these works be executed it will not in my opinion
be necessary to demolish the said house in order to
remove the complaint contained in the report of the
Medical Officer of Health.
I am, &c.,
(Signed) JNO. M. KNIGHT.
A n Engineer appointed to report
on the said house under the
provisions of the said Act.
