30. Dr. MURRAY
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he will take steps to expedite the approval by the Board of Health of the housing scheme submitted by the Lewis District Committee?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY UNDER-SECRETARY of HEALTH for SCOTLAND (Mr. Pratt)
The Scottish Board of Health have arranged that one of their architectural inspectors should visit Stornoway with the Lewis District Committee's architect next week to settle the details of the housing scheme which the district committee submitted for the vicinity of Stornoway. The district committee also propose to erect houses in some of the townships of Lewis, but have not yet submitted specific proposals for the Board's approval. The whole matter will be considered by the Board when they receive the inspector's report.
Is my hon. Friend aware that the whole of the transport facilities of these parts have been used by inspectors from the Board of Health and the Board of Agriculture for the last two years, and is it not time that the matter was settled?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
That is practically the same question as the one on the Paper, but rather longer verbiage.
