HC Deb 06 July 1920 vol 131 cc1237-8
82. Sir A. SPROT

asked how many housing schemes have been sanctioned for the district of the lower ward of Lanarkshire and for how many houses; and whether any houses have been completed or commenced in this district and what are the numbers of each?


A scheme for 800 houses in the district referred to has been approved by the Scottish Board of Health. These houses will be distributed over a number of sites, ten of which have already been approved. No houses have been commenced or completed under this scheme, but it is anticipated that tenders involving 128 houses, apportioned over two sites at Gartcosh and Bishopbriggs, will be invited very soon.
