HC Deb 03 July 1923 vol 166 cc231-2

asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health when the rent of the houses now occupied for two years under the Mid-Lanark housing scheme will be fixed?

Captain ELLIOT

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to his question on this subject on the 6th June. The Scottish Board of Health have now furnished the local authority with their answers to the statement submitted by the local authority. The Rents Tribunal will be asked to deal with the case as expeditiously as possible after the local authority have considered the answers of the Board.


Seeing that these houses have been occupied for three years, is it not desirable that the people should know the rent they have to pay?

Captain ELLIOT

Yes; but we have only just received the statement from the local authority. We are as anxious as the hon. Member that the people should know the rent to be paid for these houses.
