§ Mr. Gallacher
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that the shortage of building materials is causing certain local authorities in Scotland to postpone their building schemes; that overcrowding is increasing and that rents are rising; and will he call a conference in Edinburgh, represented by Members of Parliament with representatives of the principal burghs and county councils, to discuss wages and means of solving the problem of housing?
§ Mr. Elliot
I would refer to the answer given to the question by the hon. Member on this subject on the 29th June.
