§ Mr. William 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 each is of the total stock of houses.
§ Mr. Ross:
The Summary Tables for the 1966 Sample Census include the following figures:—
Number of households lacking exclusive use of a fixed bath 340,790 Number of households lacking exclusive use of a hot water tap 215,680 Number of households lacking exclusive use of an internal water closet 200,590
These totals represent 21.3, 13.5 and 12.5 per cent. of all Scottish households respectively.
