HC Deb 03 February 1956 vol 548 cc145-6W
Mr. Patrick Maitland

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that the East Kilbride Development Corporation has forbidden the erection of pigeon-lofts by certain of its tenants; and whether he will invite development corporations, in the interest of encouraging the growth of local amenities, to encourage the activities of homing clubs.

Mr. J. Stuart

East Kilbride Development Corporation does not forbid the keeping of pigeons by their tenants. Applications have to be lodged through the local homing club and each application is considered on its merits.

It is the policy of both new town development corporations in Scotland to encourage social group activities such as those of homing clubs.
