HC Deb 08 April 1930 vol 237 cc1981-2W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the average grant per house now being paid by the Treasury to Glasgow for houses constructed under the 50–50 slum-clearance scheme?


I regret that I am not in a position to furnish the information asked for. The expenditure in connection with the various schemes has not yet been finally determined and grant is meantime paid not only in respect of expenditure on houses completed but in respect of expenditure on houses under construction, and on the acquisition and clearance of insanitary properties. Up to 31st March, 1930, however, the total contributions paid by the State to the corporation under these schemes amounted to £140,464, while at 28th February, 1930, the number of houses completed under slum clearance schemes was 3,874 and 1,308 were under construction.
