§ 43. Mr. Kirkwood
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that Mr. Daniel Beattie, who was wounded in the last War, is living in Millbum Park, Alexandria, in an old omnibus measuring 14 by 7 by 6 feet together with his wife and 10 children under 15 years of age because he has been unable to get a house; that Mr. Beattie has now been called up; and whether he will take immediate steps to provide a house for his wife and children?
§ Mr. Colville
I am making inquiries from the local authority into the case referred to and will write to the hon. Member.
§ Mr. Kirkwood
Will the Secretary of State go into this matter, because six months ago I raised it and drew attention to the hellish conditions in which these people were living and the right hon. Gentleman promised to look into it, but nothing was done?
