Housing in the Netherlands - IV

HAVING treated in broad general outline the subject of housing in the Netherlands, and having set out the difficulties that have been encountered in the course of the efforts made by the Dutch people to grapple with the various phases of this complex problem, and explained the measures invoked by the authorities in their endeavours to correct, the troubles produced partly by neglect in the matter of housing extending over a generation or two, and partly as the direct result of the great war, I venture to believe that it will be of general interest briefly to examine the methods of building adopted by the Dutch authorities, and the character, type and standard of the housing accommodation provided during the period particularly under review at the moment.
