§ 43. Sir David Robertson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will now permit new council houses to be erected in rural Caithness where water supplies will not be available for some years.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
The county council were given this permission in 1946 on the understanding that suitable temporary water supplies would be introduced pending completion of the county council's comprehensive water supply scheme.
§ Sir D. Robertson
As the County Council has done nothing at all to comply with that order, will my right hon. Friend ascertain why his Department has taken no action, because a very large number of people are living in thoroughly unsatisfactory conditions?
§ Mr. M. MacMillan
Will the right hon. Gentleman advise the electors of Caithness to elect something other than a Tory local authority?
