§ 29. Mr. MACLEAN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether there is likely to be any revision, of the financial provisions of the 1933 Housing Act, in view of the fact that local authorities in 660 Scotland are unable to cope with the problems of overcrowding and the replacement of insanitary dwelling-houses?
§ Sir G. COLLINS
The proposals of the Government for dealing with overcrowding are under consideration, and will be embodied in a Bill which I shall submit in due course. As regards the replacement of insanitary dwelling-houses, the financial provisions of the Housing (Scotland) Act, 1930, are considered adequate.
