HC Deb 09 December 1920 vol 135 cc2598-600

Resolution reported, That, for the purpose of any Act of the present Session to amend the law relating to Housing in Scotland, and for purposes in connection therewith, it is expedient to authorise the payment out of moneys provided by Parliament of grants under section one of The Housing (Additional Powers) Act, 1919, in respect of houses completed within two years of the passing of that Act or such further period not exceeding four months as the Scottish Board of Health may in any special case allow.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Committee on the said Resolution."


The purpose of this Resolution is to enable the period of subsidy payable to builders up to 23rd December this year to be extended for another year. No further charge is involved as a sum of £15,000,000 has been set apart for this purpose. The sole object is to extend the time and not to increase the money.

The remaining Government Orders were read, and postponed.

It being after half-past Eleven of the clock upon Thursday evening, Mr. DEPUTY-SPEAKER adjourned the House, without Question put, pursuant to Standing Order.

Adjourned at Twelve minutes after Twelve o'clock.
