§ 53. Mr. Millan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has for increasing the rate of slum clearance.
§ Mr. Leburn
The rate of house building on which the rate of slum clearance mainly depends, can perhaps best be increased by authorities co-operating to make the maximum use of new building techniques. My right hon. Friend is sending proposals for this purpose to the local authorities and other bodies concerned this week.
