HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 cc113-4W
Mr. Buchanan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he has taken to ensure that the Corporation of Glasgow carries out its duty under Part 7 of the Housing (Scotland) Act, 1966, to provide sufficient new houses to meet the housing needs of the citizens of Glasgow.

Mr. Ross

My hon. Friend, the Minister of State has discussed the needs of the city with representatives of the corporation on many occasions in the last four years, most recently on 13th June when he impressed on them the need for a more active approach to replacement of unsatisfactory housing and urged the Corporation to build for the purpose not only within but also outside the city boundaries.
