§ Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the faulty workmanship in houses erected by the Scottish Special Housing Association in New Cumnock, Ayrshire; and what steps he is taking in the matter.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
I understand that water has penetrated some of these houses. Remedial experiments, which were interrupted by bad weather, will, it is hoped, be resumed shortly. When an effective remedy is found, it will be applied without delay to all the houses concerned.
