MUCH of the matter for this volume was prepared over twelve months ago, and one of the difficulties of its production has been that of frequent revision in consequence of legislative and other changes. For a time publication was withheld in order to incorporate changes proposed to be effected by the Ministry of Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill, which Bill was rejected by the House of Lords in December last. One of the chief objects of the housing provisions of that Bill was the extension, by twelve months, of the period during which the State subsidy was payable to private persons building houses-for the conditions see page 114—and subsequently to its rejection the Government gave a promise that such extension would be the subject of further legislation at an early date. But this volume has been so long promised, so long in hand and in type, that it has not been thought proper to delay its appearance until that legislation was effected.
The subject dealt with in this volume is a very comprehensive one, and I feel I cannot have avoided errors and omissions. I shall welcome corrections.
I have been assisted by the works of eminent legal authorities who have contributed to this subject prior to 1919, and the various official publications of the Health Ministry.
I desire also to express my warmest thanks to my friend Mr. T. A. Rushton for much valuable assistance.
