§ 68. Rear-Admiral ADAIR
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether nine cinemas are being built in Glasgow in spite of protest by the Corporation?
§ Mr. PRATT(Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Health for Scotland)
I am aware that the Corporation of Glasgow, in terms of Section 5 of the Housing (Additional Powers) Act, 1919, passed Orders prohibiting the erection of nine cinemas, but on appeal, in terms of the Act, the Appeal Tribunal quashed the Orders. I have no power to review the decisions of the Tribunal.
§ Rear-Admiral ADAIR
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that these luxury buildings are making progress in Scotland, whilst housing schemes are being held up for want of bricks and cement?
§ Mr. R. McLAREN
If these cinemas have to be built would it not be possible to build them with sandstone instead of bricks, which might then be used for housing purposes.
