HC Deb 02 March 1954 vol 524 cc87-8W
Mr. Steele

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many huts at the Camis Eskan Camp, Helensburgh, have now been demolished; how many families still remain to be rehoused; and what allocation of houses have been given to the council for this purpose.

Mr. J. Stuart

Forty-six huts have been demolished and 24 families remain to be rehoused. In 1952 the council received special allocations, totalling 130 houses, to assist them in rehousing the 190 families at that time resident in the various camps in the county, including Camis Eskan Camp. As the council are now free to build to the extent that the available building resources permit, no further allocations of houses are necessary.
