HC Deb 09 February 1960 vol 617 cc27-8W
Mr. Willis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when it is expected that tenants in temporary prefabricated houses in Edinburgh will be rehoused in permanent houses.

Mr. Maclay

I understand that Edinburgh Corporation is considering a general scheme to remove all its temporary houses and to rehouse the tenants in permanent houses. As almost 4,000 houses are involved, such a scheme would take a considerable time to carry through, having regard to other housing needs that the corporation must meet.
