HC Deb 24 September 1948 vol 456 cc211-2W
Mr. Gallacher

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the number of houses condemned in the Parliamentary Divisions of Gorbals, Pollok, Central, Bridgeton, Shettleston, Springburn, Cathcart, Kelvinside, Tradeston and Govan.

Mr. Woodburn

The following table shows the number of houses in these Divisions which have, since the end of the war, been the subject of closing or demolition orders under the housing acts or condemned as dangerous buildings under a Glasgow Local Act. Corresponding figures for earlier years could not be obtained without a disproportionate expenditure of time and labour.

Gorbals 36 77
Pollok 4
Central 56 165
Bridgeton 11 16
