HC Deb 19 June 1928 vol 218 cc1575-6

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what rural housing authorities in Scotland have not framed schemes under the provisions of the Housing (Rural Workers) Act; and what does the Government propose to do to deal with the rural housing problem in those areas?


A list of the county local authorities in Scotland that have not had schemes approved under the Housing (Rural Workers) Act, 1926, is being forwarded to the hon. and gallant Member. The Scottish Board of Health are continuing to press local authorities of county areas to submit schemes. In cases where local authorities have definitely decided not to submit a scheme, the question whether they should be called on to submit schemes to the Board for approval is receiving the consideration of my right hon. Friend.
