HC Deb 16 March 1955 vol 538 cc126-7W
Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that Glasgow Corporation Housing Committee has unanimously recommended that if he would withdraw the request for a contribution to the over-all deficit of the proposed new town at Cumbernauld, this corporation would be prepared to pay the statutory rate contribution for 10 years, or such shorter period as the tenant remains in occupancy, in respect of each house let to a tenant nominated by the corporation; and if he is prepared to accept this compromise as a solution to the dispute between himself and the corporation.

Mr. J. Stuart

I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to him yesterday.
