§ 19. Mr. STEPHEN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of houses built under the respective Housing Acts in Scotland and Glasgow, respectively, since 1918, giving the figures separately for each Act, and also in each case the number of houses for letting purposes?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
As the reply includes a number of figures I will with the hon. Member's permission, circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the statement:
§ The numbers of houses built up to 31st May, 1927, under the various Housing Acts in Scotland and Glasgow, respectively, are as follows:
|Local Authority Schemes.|
|Housing, Town Planning, Etc. (Scotland) Act, 1919||25,542||4,856|
|Housing, Etc., Act, 1923||3,433||2,015|
|Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1924||9,286||420|
|Demonstration Steel Houses||17||—|
|Housing (Additional Powers) Act, 1919||2,324||146|
|Housing, Etc., Act, 1923||9,820||956|
|Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1924||270||—|
§ With the exception of a small number of house-purchase schemes promoted by local authorities, all the houses built by local authorities and all the houses built by private enterprise under the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1924, were erected for letting purposes. I have no information to show the number of the houses built by private enterprise under the Housing (Additional Powers) Act, 1919, and the Housing, etc., Act, 1923, that have been built for letting. In addition to the above, 1,652 steel houses have 1655 been built by the Second Scottish National Housing Company (Housing Trust), Limited, in Scotland, of which 602 are in Glasgow.
