HC Deb 17 April 1951 vol 486 c1631
6. Mr. Steele

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of applicants on the waiting list for houses in the Burgh of Cove and Kilgreggan.

Mr. T. Fraser

I am informed that the number is 44, Sir.

Mr. Steele

Would my hon. Friend bear in mind that this is a Tory local authority who were allocated 20 houses by his Department in May, 1948; that building did not start until January, 1950; and that, as far as I understand, no houses have yet been completed? Would he arrange for the Scottish Special Housing Association to go into this local authority area and build houses for the people who are still waiting for them?

Mr. Fraser

I should like to consider my hon. Friend's suggestion.
