§ 53. Mr. BUCHANAN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that a number of persons living in slum-clearance houses in Glasgow, and whose only income for two adults and three children is 29s. weekly in parish relief, are finding it impossible to secure the rent asked for during the winter months; and if, seeing that the rent charged is more than the houses formerly occupied, he will take steps either to have the relief increased or the rents reduced?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I would refer to my reply on this subject given to the hon. Member on the 6th March, 1928, to which I have nothing to add except that if any individual cases of hardship are brought to my notice I shall have inquiries made.
