HC Deb 08 June 1939 vol 348 c607W
Mr. Stephen

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that the Barr Farm Bungalow Colony Association, Skelmorlie, Ayrshire, have been warned off their ground at May, 1940; that there is accommodation on this site for 1,000 women and children; that the estimated cost of the property on this site is between £4,000 and £5,000; and what steps he intends to take to prevent the eviction of these people from their huts, and the destruction of this scheme which has been so successful in ministering to national fitness?

Mr. Wedderburn

I understand that the agreements between the members of the association and the proprietors of the site are due to expire in May, 1940. I am informed that the county council are in communication with the proprietors on the subject of an extension of the agreements.
