HC Deb 18 November 1930 vol 245 c218

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if plans have yet been received and sanctioned by his Department for the building of a new school in Dale Street, South Side, Glasgow; if not, what action is being taken; and if any plans have yet been received for a school clinic in Gorbals?


Preliminary plans for the now school building to be erected on the Dale Street site were provisionally approved by the Scottish Education Department on 13th March last, and I am informed from Glasgow that tenders for the execution of the work will be invited in the course of a few weeks. With regard to the last part of the question, I understand that the matter of a school clinic in Gorbals is under the consideration of the Glasgow Public Health Department as part of a general scheme.


Is my hen. Friend aware that the Secretary of State and myself received a promise that this clinic would be provided almost at once? Now six months have gone by.


My information is that the Public Health Department of the Glasgow Corporation are considering the question of the provision of clinics. I have no further details.
