§ 110. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that at No. 2, Torhill, Muirkirk, Ayrshire, 12 people are living in a room, that a baby is expected, and what steps are to be taken in the matter.214W
§ Mr. Woodburn
I understand that the tenant of this one-apartment house was evicted from a council house for nonpayment of rent. The only solution of gross overcrowding of this kind is to build more houses and the county council have a scheme under construction in Muirkirk.
