Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount of each class of hydrocarbon oils retained for home consumption during the year ended 31st March, 1955, and the net amount received in respect of duty thereon, showing, in particular, the amounts received in respect of motor spirit and heavy oils used as fuel in road vehicles.

Mr. H. Brooke

The required particulars are as follows:

Kilbride Development Corporation for permission to build a community hut in the Westwood district.

Mr. J. Stuart

As the hon. Member has already been informed, approval was given on 1st February, 1955. I understand, however, that the Local Community Association do not now wish the project to proceed.

Mr. Patrick Maitland

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many houses have been completed by the East Kilbride Development Corporation; and how many had been occupied on 1st January, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, and at the last convenient date, respectively.

Mr. J. Stuart

At 30th June, 1955, 3,109 houses had been completed and 2,871 of these were occupied. The numbers occupied at 31st March (the nearest convenient date to 1st January) in each of the years mentioned were 343, 712, 1,608 and 2,509, respectively.
