HC Deb 21 November 1951 vol 494 c59W
Mr. Oswald

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the slow rate of house building in the City of Edinburgh; and what action he is taking to find out the reasons for the delay.

Mr. J. Stuart

I am aware that Edinburgh's housing programme has been delayed largely because of lack of sites and shortage of labour. The corporation have now overcome these difficulties, and I hope that output will be substantially improved next year.
