§ Mr. HOGGE
asked the, Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware of the complaints of the staff of the Scottish Board of Health with regard to the premises in which the Department is housed in Prince's Street, Edinburgh; that this Departmental building was an old hotel and quite unsuitable as offices; that in one room there is little or no ventilation or heating; and that several rooms are uninhabitable at times in consequence of smoke; and whether he will cause an in- 533W vestigation to be made into the grievances of the staff with a view to remedial action?
§ Mr. JOWETT
I have been asked to reply to this question. I am aware that complaints have been made that certain of the rooms in the rear portion of premises occupied by the Scottish Board of Health in Prince's Street, Edinburgh, are defective in ventilation and heating, and arrangements are now in progress which will, I trust, improve the conditions now obtaining.
