§ 72. Mr. Hannah
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he can make a statement on the results of the efforts of the South Queensferry Council to preserve threatened houses built in the seventeenth century?
§ Sir P. Sassoon
I have been asked to reply. Representations have been made by my Department to the South Queens-ferry Town Council as to the desirability of preserving two seventeenth century houses of considerable architectural interest which are threatened with demolition for road widening, but no reply has yet been received from the council.
§ Mr. Hannah
Will it not materially damage the tourist traffic to South Queens-ferry if these houses are pulled down?
