HC Deb 07 March 1939 vol 344 c1938W
Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the acreage of each of the housing sites, Garvel Terrace and Hillfoot Terrace, Tarbert, Argyll; and what is the respective feu duty per acre?

Mr. Colville

I am informed by the county council that the Garvel Terrace site extends to 0.949 acres and the Hillfoot Terrace site to 0.862 acres, and that the feuduty in both cases is at the rate of £16 per acre.

Mr. Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is now in a position to say if he intends to promote legislation designed to relieve the anxieties of local councillors in Scotland, who, because of their tenancy of municipally-owned dwellings, are subject to penalties under Section 107 of the Housing Act of 1925, if they have taken part in any decision relating to any municipal housing matter?

Mr. Colville

As indicated in the oral reply to-day given to a question by the hon. Member for Stirling and Falkirk (Mr. Westwood) I propose to introduce legislation to deal with this subject at an early date.
