HC Deb 25 March 1952 vol 498 cc21-2W
4. Lieut.-Colonel Elliot

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware of the proposed transfer of a 300-bedroomed hotel in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, to a suite of offices for a commercial concern; whether he is aware of the serious deterrent this may prove to a developing tourist trade on Clydeside; and if he will take steps to ensure that adequate consideration is given to all the circumstances before final approval is stamped to this proposed change of user.

Commander Galbraith

I understand that the change of use of these premises has been formally approved by the corporation as planning authority and that the hotel has now been closed. My right hon. Friend cannot, therefore, now intervene.
