asked the Minister of Health what number of houses, designated in single tenements under Section 27 of the Housing and Town Planning Act, 1919, were converted into two or more tenements, respectively; and how many were converted into flats of more than three rooms to each dwelling?


Statistics are not available of the number of application to County Courts under Section 27 of the Housing, Town Planning, etc., Act, 1919, or of the number of houses converted into separate tenements by private persons. Fifty-one local authorities have undertaken conversions of houses and other buildings into working-class tenements, and 1,033 tenements have been provided by this means.
