HC Deb 28 February 1928 vol 214 c198

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the total number of houses built by the Glasgow Corporation since the end of the War; the total now building; the total for which plans are passed but not started; and if the latter will rank for subsidy?


The total number of houses completed with State assistance by the Corporation of Glasgow as at the 31st January, 1928, was 12,114, and the number under construction at the same date was 4,730. The approval of all plans by the Scottish Board of Health is not required, but at the 31st January, 1928, the Board had approved tenders for the erection in Glasgow of 4,608 houses which had not then been begun. These latter houses will rank for the present rates of subsidy if completed by such date as may be fixed as the result of any revision of the subsidy in terms of Section 5 of the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1924, after the 1st October next.
