Excerpt from Housing of the Working Classes: Notes on the Action Taken Between the Years 1855 and 1912 for the Better Housing of the Working Classes in London, With Special Reference to the Action Taken by the London County Council Between the Years 1889 and 1912
In the°latter part of the year 1900, the Council published a work entitled The Housing Question in London, which described in some detail the action taken by the legislature, the Metropolitan Board of Works and the Council with regard to the housing of the working-classes in London. Amongst00ther features the volume contained plans and full particulars of every scheme undertaken by the Board or by the Council up to that date. During the period which has since elapsed, the Council has continued to deal with the various phases of the problem and especially to develop estates under the powers conferred by Part III. Of the Housing of the Working Classes Act, 1890. It was felt that a complete and concise account of the attempts made to deal with the housing problem from 1855, the date when the Metropolitan Board of vvorks was constituted, until the present year would be of interest to the general reader and the student Of municipal affairs, and of use and assistance to municipal authorities, at home and abroad. Accordingly, on 16th May, 1911, the Council authorised the preparation of the present volume.
