§ 38. Mr. DUNCAN MILLAR
asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health on what basis the figure of 25,550 houses, allocated to Scotland under the Housing and Town Planning, etc., Act, 1919, was fixed; and what proportion this figure bears to the number of houses allocated to England and Wales?
§ Captain ELLIOT
The figure referred to in the first part of the question represents the allocation to Scotland, in the Goschen proportion, of the number of houses to be built under the Act in England and Wales, namely, 176,000, with an addition in respect of the smaller number of houses likely to be built in Scotland than in England and Wales under the private builders subsidy scheme. As regards the last part of the question, the proportion between the figures for the two countries is 11.6 to 80.
