§ 35. Mr. ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that there were in 1931 five cases of 15 persons or more living in a two-roomed house in Glasgow; and whether action has yet been taken in all these five cases to abate the overcrowding?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Sir Godfrey Collins)
The answer to the first part of the question is unfortunately in the affirmative. I am having inquiries made into the point raised in the second part of the question, and I shall communicate the result to my hon. Friend.
§ Mr. ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
Is my right hon. Friend satisfied that in the allocation of houses the most deserving cases always receive first consideration?
