HC Deb 05 December 1947 vol 445 cc113-4W
Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what extent the reduction of the cut in total capital investment from £200,000,000 to £180,000,000 is calculated to affect housing in Scotland.

Mr. Woodburn

The general effect will be to enable more permanent houses to be completed in 1948 than would otherwise have been possible.
