§ Mr. Steele
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps have been taken to improve the condition of the 49 aluminium houses in Dumbarton, in and around High Mains Avenue; and how far they have been successful.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
A system of background heating installed experimentally in 1952 in 11 houses at this site has not proved effective in every case. The matter is to be further discussed with representatives of the Town Council next week.
