HC Deb 05 August 1924 vol 176 c2727
27. Mr. CLARKE

asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health the reason why the final instalments of the Dalkeith housing schemes are still unpaid; and, as it is four years since the contracts were fixed, will he now take steps for the remeasurements being completed so that the contractors may receive payment of the amounts still due?


The final measurements for Dalkeith housing scheme under the Housing, Town Planning, Etc. (Scotland) Act, 1919, have not yet been submitted to the Scottish Board of Health for approval. The local authority by whom the final payments fall to be made, have already been reminded on the matter and a further communication has been addressed to them. On receipt of the final measurements they will have immediate attention from the Board.
