HC Deb 16 April 1946 vol 421 c398W
68. Mr. Willis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps are being taken for the provision of unorthodox types of permanent houses in Edinburgh.

Mr. Buchanan:

The corporation are now erecting 410 Orlit concrete houses and 100 Swedish timber houses. I discussed the question of the adoption of other forms of non-traditional building with the housing committee on 8th April, and I understand that the corporation are considering further projects of this kind. I propose to invite the corporation to share in the allocation of 5,000 B.I.S.F. houses which will shortly be offered by the Government to the larger local authorities in Scotland.
