§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Mr. Skelton)
The total number of houses built under the Addison scheme in Scotland is 25,550. The annual amount subscribed by the State under the scheme varies in accordance with the yearly deficit. For the year ended the 31st March, 1932, the contribution of the State amounted to £976,995.
§ Mr. SKELTON
It is the case that, of some 400 Addison houses built by public utility societies, 198 have been sold, and that to that extent relief has been given to the public contribution. I am afraid that I cannot say that any practicable method of an enlarged scheme of selling has yet been thought of, but personally I should be very glad to see the process of sale encouraged and extended.
