§ Mr. Michael Clark Hutchison
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has drawn the attention of local authorities in Scotland to the problems and possible dangers of using high alumina cement in school and other public buildings.
§ Mr. William Ross
This is a matter for concern, and I circulated information and advice on this problem, including results as they became available from the continuing work of the Building Research Establishment, to Scottish local authorities on 1st March, 7th June and 11th July. Further detailed advice will be issued shortly.
