The end of the War brought England to a full realization of the great shortage of houses. There had been a diminution of house building for the five years previous to the War and none were erected between 1914 and 1919. Apparently, all classes in England have come to believe that "England's destiny is linked with England's homes," "Slum conditions are no longer to be tolerated," "Each man is entitled to a decent ome and should have it." Mr. Veiler, in a report on how England is meeting the housinf shortage, states that England is employed today in building 500,000 houses that will cost the taxpayers $100,000,000 each year for the next sixty years.
