§ 65. Mr. WHITEHOUSE
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he has now considered the Report of the Royal Commission on Housing in Scotland; and if he proposes to introduce emergency legislation to deal with the more urgent of the evils disclosed?
§ Mr. MUNRO
I have considered this Report, and am hopeful that the more pressing needs of the situation can be met by administrative action, without waiting for legislation. My hon. Friend, how- 313 ever, may rest assured that the recommendations of the Commission as to legislation will not be lost sight of.
§ Mr. WHITEH0USE
Will the right hon. Gentleman kindly state whether by administrative action he will be able to deal with the points put to him in the Memorandum of the Scottish Members?
§ Mr. TENNANT
Are we to understand that in the event of it not being possible for the right hon. Gentleman to carry out the recommendations of the Royal Commission as he would wish, he will then introduce legislation in the coming Session?
