HC Deb 13 May 1919 vol 115 cc1440-1

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that in the houses erected, by arrangement with the Ministry of Munitions, at Coronation Road, New Stevenston, in the Middle Ward of Lanark, no wash-tub conveniences have been provided; whether he is aware that these houses have been inspected by the medical officer of health for the Middle Ward of Lanark and that he has reported that they are without proper wash-house accommodation and in that respect are unfit for human habitation; whether he is aware that the district commitee of the Middle Ward of Lanark has been in communication with the Local Government Board for Scotland on the question and have been informed that the Ministry of Munitions refuses to sanction the erection of wash-tubs; and whether he proposes to take any and, if so, what action in the circumstances?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on this subject on Friday last to my hon. Friend the Member for North Lanark (Mr. R. M'Laren).
