HC Deb 15 March 1955 vol 538 c1115
43. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many certificates of disrepair have been granted in Dundee under the provisions of the Housing (Repairs and Rents) Act.

Mr. J. Stuart

Of 11 applications for certificates of disrepair received up to the 31st December, 1954, the town council granted eight, refused two, and have still one under consideration.

Mr. Thomson

While thanking the Secretary of State for that information, will he also expedite the issuing of general information on the working of this Act, both in Dundee and elsewhere in Scotland, so that we may know how it is operating and, in particular, how our constituents are being affected by it?

Mr. Stuart

I can assure the hon. Gentleman that I have no desire to hide anything and will shortly issue the information.
