HC Deb 10 April 1963 vol 675 cc160-1W
Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has now completed his consideration of the granting of subsidies in respect of mobile houses associated with redevelopment operations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Leburn

My right hon. Friend is prepared to consider approving the payment of subsidy for a limited period in respect of mobile houses, provided they are houses as defined in the Housing Acts, are soundly constructed, and that the emergency character of the local housing circumstances specially justifies their use.
