§ Mr. STEPHEN
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many houses were 2285W built in Glasgow last year for slum clearance, the number of intermediate houses and the number of ordinary houses, and the corresponding figures for this year; and the inclusive rents charged for the
Year. Number of new houses let.* Slum clearance. Intermediate. Ordinary. Total. 1935 2,779 519 418 3,716 1936 (to 30th November) 1,112 661 351 2,124
Number of apartments. Weekly inclusive rent charged for above houses. Slum clearance. Intermediate. Ordinary. 1 (in hostels) … … 5s. — — 2 … … 6s. 11d. — — 3 … … 8s. 1d.- 8s. 3d. 10s. 13s. 2d.- 15s. 9d. 4 … … 8s. 9d. 11s. 6d. 15s. 9d.-20s. 8d. 5 … … No new 5-apartment houses were let in the period. * The number of houses shown as let in 1936 substantially exceeds the number completed. The reason for this is that many houses completed in December, 1935, were not let until the following January. The houses are not allocated between the slum clearance, intermediate, and ordinary categories until they are let.
