HC Deb 11 March 1958 vol 584 c26W
Mr. McGovern

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans have been submitted to him by Glasgow Corporation for slum clearance, multiple storey flats, and entire area clearance since the beginning of 1957; and what plans he has approved.

Mr. J. N. Browne

In February, 1957, my right hon. Friend approved proposals for the re-development of the Gorbals. During the period referred to the corporation has submitted proposals under the Planning Acts for the re-development of Pollokshaws and has notified my right hon. Friend of resolutions to clear two small areas under the Housing Acts. The corporation are now discussing with his Department proposals for multistorey flats in the Gorbals and on a site at Blairdardie.
