§ 44. Mr. Stephen
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many houses have been completed in the Borrowfield housing scheme in the Camlachie Division of Glasgow; and whether the provision of houses in this overcrowded area will be pressed forward in spite of war conditions, in view of the great housing hardship of the workers in this area?
§ Mr. Colville
I regret to say that no houses have yet been completed at Barrowfield owing to shortage of timber. Should further supplies become available, I shall keep the position of Barrowfield in mind. In the meantime, I am having active consideration given to the general question of completing houses by alternative methods of construction.
