HC Deb 01 July 1952 vol 503 c240
37. Mr. W. G. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many applications have been received by Glasgow Corporation for spinster flats; how many of these applications are from corporation tenants wishing a transfer; and how many spinster flats are in course of erection.

Mr. J. Stuart

Glasgow Corporation are unable, without a great deal of research, to indicate the total number of applications which they have received for single women's flats. At 15th May the number of "live" applications from Corporation tenants was 53. One hundred and twenty three single women's flats are being built now.

Mr. Bennett

Is the Minister aware that the figure was given out semiofficially a short time ago as well over 1,000, and is it not rather strange that more information cannot be given at this time of day?

Mr. Stuart

I am sorry that the information is not available.
