§ 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 a28W 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.
