§ Sir A. SPROT
asked the Secretary for Scotland how many housing schemes have been finally approved in the constituency of East Fife, including the burghs and the county district, and for how many houses; how many houses have been completed; and how many are in progress?
§ Mr. MUNRO
Eleven housing schemes have been approved in the constituency of East Fife, involving the erection of 482 houses by August, 1922. None of the schemes for new houses in this area has yet reached the building stage. In one case, however, work in connection with the reconstruction of 11 tenement houses is in progress, and in other two cases tenders for street construction in connection with schemes have been approved.
§ Mr. RODGER
asked the Secretary for Scotland if the Scottish Board of Health have received from local authorities the Return required to be given by 31st March, 1920, in terms of the Housing, Town Planning, etc. (Scotland) Act, showing the number of houses completed and other details; and, if so, can a summary now be given?
§ Mr. MUNRO
The Scottish Board of Health have received the Returns referred to. The Returns show that at 31st March last only one local authority had houses completed under an approved scheme. The scheme in question was that of the Burgh of Renfrew, under which 12 houses had been completed and 10 occupied at the date in question.
