HC Deb 26 May 1952 vol 501 c121W
117. Major Anstruther-Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland which types of prefabricated houses built in the immediate post-war period are best surviving the stress of wind and weather; and what is their expectation of life as habitable homes.

Mr. Stuart

All permanent non-traditional houses built by local authorities have been approved for subsidy purposes as having, with proper maintenance, an estimated life of at least 60 years. I have no reason to suppose that any particular type will wear better or worse than others in similar circumstances.
