HC Deb 09 December 1964 vol 703 cc190-1W
48. Sir M. Galpern

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, as a result of the recent meeting between the Under-Secretary of State and the Convener of Glasgow Corporation's Housing Committee, he will now concentrate on Glasgow's housing problems and launch a programme aimed at the speedy solution of a national rather than a local problem.

Dr. Dickson Mahon

Glasgow's housing problems are already regarded as more than local and contributions to their solution are being made by the Scottish Special Housing Association, New Town Development Corporations, and overspill receiving authorities as well as by Glasgow Corporation themselves. Much remains to be done but my right hon. Friend will press ahead with all practicable measures to alleviate the housing situation in Glasgow and in other parts of Scotland.
