HC Deb 06 March 1918 vol 103 c1950

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether a communication has been received from the Rosyth Ratepayers' Association complaining of the high rents charged for the new houses erected in the district; whether he is aware that these houses compare unfavourably, both with regard to rent and accommodation, with the houses of Government employ és in the Crombie district close by; and what action the Admiralty intend to take to meet the complaint of their workmen at the naval base?


The communication referred to in the first part of my hon. Friend's question has been received, and is now under consideration by the Admiralty. A communication has been sent to the Local Government Board, Scotland, and also a report is being obtained from the local Admiralty officers at ROSYTH.
