Housing in the Netherlands - III

AS in our own country, so in the Netherlands, the supply of dwellings for the people in pre-war days was by means other than through the instrumentality of local authorities. In England and Wales prior to 1909, 98 per cent. of the houses for the needs of the working classes, were provided by private enterprise of various kinds and without aid from public funds. Although a certain stimulus to the housing activities of local authorities was given by the Housing and Town-Planning Act of 1909, the result of their efforts in the provision of new houses was comparatively small.
