Housing (Scotland).

Part of the debate – in the House of Commons on 23rd July 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

The question I want to put to my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary is this: Will he get his right hon. Friend to use his influence, with his own, with the Minister of Labour to see that labour is supplied, because we have everything else with which to go ahead with the building of the houses we so desperately need? Over 4,000 houses were destroyed at Clydebank over 18 months ago by the blitz, and not one house has been built since. I want the Scottish Office to use all their influence with the Minister of Labour so that the necessary men can be released in order to build houses for us.
