HC Deb 07 May 1936 vol 311 c1899W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland under what statutory or other authority Glasgow Corporation have put into operation a by-law compelling owners of property to put the windows into a condition where they would open inwards for cleaning purposes; and whether he can state the number which have been altered and the number yet to alter and when these windows will be dealt with?


The requirement as to the opening inwards of the windows of dwelling houses or habitable rooms in Glasgow is contained in Section 68 of the Glasgow Corporation Order, 1927, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy. The provision does not apply to any buildings erected before 1st January, 1928, and no notice has been sent to any owner of such property calling upon him to alter any existing windows.
