HC Deb 18 April 1917 vol 92 cc1664-5
9. Mr. HOGGE

asked the Secretary for Scotland when the Report of the Housing Commission is expected?


I am informed that the work of drafting the Report is proceeding as rapidly as possible, but I am not in a position to name a definite date for its completion.


Is my right hon. Friend aware that nine months ago he said that the matter was proceeding as rapidly as possible?


I am quite sure that I did not say it nine months ago. I am quite aware of the urgency of the question, and also that it is one of great magnitude. My hon. Friend will bear in mind that the work of this Commission was suspended for twelve months during the War. There will be no avoidable delay
