HC Deb 02 May 1944 vol 399 cc1212-3W
Mr. Maxton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that some 3o families in the Bridgeton Division of Glasgow have received notice that they are to be evicted from their homes at 5o, Madras Street and 33, Mill Street on 8th May and that no satisfactory alternative accommodation is available for them; and whether he will take steps to prevent these people from being rendered homeless.

Mr. Johnston

I am informed that as a result of the properties mentioned being declared dangerous by the Dean of Guild Court, 25 families will require to vacate their houses. I understand that the Corporation have offered these families alternative accommodation in houses which have been requisitioned and reconditioned by the Corporation.
