HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 cc217-8W
Mr. N. Macpherson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will now sanction a special allocation of houses to local authorities to meet the particular needs of tubercular cases in their areas, particularly to those which have in force points schemes for the allotment of houses.

Mr. Woodburn

I have already made a special allocation of 1,000 permanent aluminium bungalows for this purpose and, in arranging the general housing programme for 1949, I shall have regard, among other things, to the needs of areas where additional houses would be of greatest benefit in combating the spread of tuberculosis.
