Bodies such as the Workmen's National Housing Council and the Social Democratic Federation campaigned for better housing.

Byrne and Darner (1980) argue that housing provided the issues around which working-class activists could organise local pressure groups.

Thus decontrol was planned to spread gradually through the stock, at a pace determined by the movement of tenants. Unfortunately, this did not lead to the anticipated revival of new investment in private rented housing, especially of the cheaper variety, and in 1933 further legislation introduced a system whereby the highest-value properties were completely decontrolled immediately, those in the middle range continued to be subject to decontrol at the next change of tenant, and the cheapest dwellings were once again subject to continuing control.

In 1930, local authorities were required to draw up plans for slum clearance, and from 1933 they were encouraged by the subsidy system to concentrate their new building on the needs generated by the clearance programme.
