This report is the result of six months' investigation by the Brotherhood of St. Laurence. A house to home survey was conducted to determine living conditions in inner suburbs. Ninety-Six houses in two blocks in Fitzroy and South Melbourne were visited and sixty-eight of the houses were closely inspected and lengthy interviews were held with the occupants. Eighteen families at Camp Pell and a further eleven families whose applications for Commission homes had been rejected were also interviewed. Discussions have been held with a wide range of people interested in housing, and information has been obtained on housing methods used overseas. The interviewing was carried out by Miss T. M. Wardell, Dip. Soc. Stud. The report has been compiled and edited by Mr. David Scott, of the Brotherhood of St. Laurence.
