That it is desirable in modern buildings to secure the maximum insulation against the vagaries of the weather, the transmission of vibration and noise and the loss of heat, has long since been accepted, but few realise the economic necessity of providing such insulation.

MUNICIPAL Housing commenced in Leeds in 1919 and progressed steadily until 1933. 10,084 dwellings were erected and although the progress compared with some cities was, perhaps, a little slow, a good building standard was maintained. 1934 brought about a sudden change and a programme was approved for the demolition of 30,000 of the oldest type of back-to-back houses and the rehousing of the families displaced, representing
approximately 120,000 people.
