• HOUSING AND THE FLOODS [To the Editor of the

SPECTATOR.] SIR,—May I point out to Mr. Robert Street, your correspondent, that the recent deplorable flood in Millbank occurred not in the Victoria Ward but in the ward of St. Margaret and St. John ? Therefore, his excellent friend has been misled,. It is in St. Margaret and St. John's Ward that Big Business and an influx of rich men have crowded the poor into cellars.—! am, Sir, &c., GUARDIAN, VICTORIA WARD.
