HC Deb 20 March 1929 vol 226 c1729
36. Mr. HARDIE

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that recently, adjacent to Renfield Street, Glasgow, a site was sold for £75,000 which formerly changed hands at £100 and that future rents on that site will be increased as a consequence; and if he intends to take any steps to ensure that such increased values are returned to the citizens of Glasgow?

The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Sir John Gilmour)

I have no information about the matter referred to and I can give no undertaking of the nature suggested in the last part of the question.


If I furnish full details, will the right hon. Gentleman ask the Government, seeing that they are trying to get money to help forward trade, to bring in legislation to take these values, which are brought about by the community, and give them back to the community?
