SOME HOUSES IN MILL LANE. SOAIE HO U SE S IN MILL LANE i REPORT OF THE MEDICAL OFFICER. At a meeting of the Sanitary Committee of the Borough Council held on Friday (as will be seen in another column), several houses in Mill-lane were ordered to be closed as unfit for habitation on the report of the medical officer, Dr. S. J. Roderick. The report was as follows:—No. 5 consists of two rooms, one upstairs and one down. The upstair room has the walls damp and the roof in holes the room down- stairs also has damp walls, and the floor is directly on the earth. The interior of the house is dirty and has a foul odour. There is no through ventila- tion. No. G is composed of one upstair and one downstair room both having the walls very damp and in a state of decay. The roof is in holes. The water-closet has its cistern out of order and the roof has no slates on it. The gulley in the back lias been taken away. Th house is generally filthy. No. 7 consists of a room upstairs, which is filthy, having the roof in holes and the wall in the back falling down, a sack taking the place of the window. The front room downstairs has its walls very damp, and during wet weather the water must pour down. The walls in the back room are also damp and falling down. The house generally is in a state of rapid decay. The pan of the water closet was full, and the cistern out of order. The front of these houses is in a dilapitated state, and the slates on the roof in a very bad condition. All these houses should be closed at once, as they are unfit for human habitation. The other two houses in this block (Nos. 3 and 4) are in a fair condition inside, but the roof is in a bad condition, as in Nos. 5, 6, and 7, and should be repaired.
