HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 c146W
111. Major Anstruther-Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what extent recent experience has shown any types of non-traditional houses to be superior to others in speed of erection and value for money; and what recommendations he is making based upon his experience.

Mr. J. Stuart

It is not possible to make a fair comparison as regards value since the types vary so much in plan, construction and the materials used. Similarly, speed of erection is governed by many varying local circumstances. As, however, non-traditional types as a whole can be built on average more quickly than traditional houses, I have suggested to local authorities that up to 50 per cent. of their programmes should consist of those types.
