HC Deb 18 July 1923 vol 166 c2299

asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health if he is aware of the great housing shortage in Torrance of Campsie, Stirlingshire; that a large proportion of houses are nominally tenanted by non-residents; that young couples desirous of being married canot find suitable housing accommodation; and if he can take any steps to call the attention of the local authority to the urgency of remedying this state of affairs?

Captain ELLIOT (Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Health, Scotland)

My attention had not previously been called to the question of housing accommodation in the place referred to. I am having a communication addressed to the local authority asking for their views and inquiring what action they propose to take to remedy any shortage of houses that may exist.
