HC Deb 15 April 1964 vol 693 c69W
Mr. W. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his estimate of the number of houses without bathrooms, hot water supplies, or internal lavatory systems; and what proportion this is of the total supply of houses.

Mr. Noble

The total stock of houses in Scotland at the present time is about 1,660,000. Estimates of the numbers lacking the facilities referred to are:

Number Percentage of Total
Houses without a fixed bath 434,000 26.1
Houses without a hot Water tap 337,000 20.3
Houses without water-Closets 43,000 2–6

In addition, about 238,000 households have shared use of water-closets within buildings.
