HC Deb 27 July 1951 vol 491 c117W
Sir W. Darling

asked the Minister of Works how much building has been licensed for Government purposes, including subsidised housing, in the city of Edinburgh between 1945 and 1950; and how much has been licensed for other building requirements.

Mr. G. Brown

Figures are not available from 1945, but in the three years to December, 1950, the total value of work sanctioned in the city of Edinburgh amounted to about £17 million, of which £7 million was for house-building by the local authority and £800,000 for new Government buildings.
