I am informed by Glasgow Corporation that 24 of these houses were ready for occupation at 30th November, 50 at 31st December, 78 at 31st January and 102 at 29th February. None had been occupied at 20th March.
Is the hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that Glasgow has 100,000 people on the waiting list and, while every effort has been made to inspire and encourage those people to purchase these houses, not one in 200 has responded. It is criminal to keep houses unoccupied for a long period. Is the hon. and gallant Gentleman prepared to withdraw permission for the sale?
Does the hon. and gallant Gentleman not agree that it is a gross breach of faith to allow these houses, which were originally allocated for tenant occupancy, to be put up for sale?
