§ 164. Mr. N. Macpherson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that completion of houses in Dumfries-shire has been held up for four months owing to non-delivery of steel window frames; and when he expects to effect delivery.
§ Mr. Westwood
I understand that all windows required for six houses at Brydekirk have already been despatched and that arrangements have been made for very early despatch of the remainder required for houses at Thornhill and Gretna. The Regional Materials Officer of the Ministry of Works is keeping in constant touch with the County Council and the suppliers to ensure that no further delay occurs.
