HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 cc945-6W
Rear-Admiral ADAIR

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether the progress of housing in Glasgow is satisfactory; and, if not, what is the cause of the unsatisfactory progress and what is being done to remedy it?


As regards the progress of housing and the steps being taken to expedite building in Glasgow, I would refer to my answers of the 10th instant to the hon. and gallant Member for Tradeston and of the 12th instant to the hon. Member for St. Rollox. The Corporation are, I understand, inviting tenders this week for 1,600 more houses. Other contracts are under consideration. I am satisfied that the Corporation are taking all possible stops to secure satisfactory progress, and that the Scottish Board of Health is giving every assistance in its power.
