HC Deb 01 May 1956 vol 552 c20W
62. Sir D. Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if the six families living in Hillhead Quarry, Wick, have now been temporarily accommodated in decent conditions; and, as some of them have been waiting for years for a council house, when they are likely to be permanently rehoused.

Mr. J. Stuart

Caithness County Council and Wick Town Council are urgently considering the rehousing of these families in other temporary accommodation. The rehousing of any of the families in permanent accommodation is a matter for the local authorities, both of which have substantial waiting lists.
