asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that under present regulations the public may not purchase oil paint for the internal protection of their houses, even when the houses have become infested with vermin or been exposed to germs such as tubercle bacilli; and whether, as such conditions exist in certain areas of Glasgow and elsewhere, he will ensure that where there is reason to suspect the presence of vermin and infectious germs every facility should be given to householders and property owners to purchase paint for redecorating and protecting their homes against infection and the spread of vermin?
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given by my right hon. Friend, the Minister of Supply, on 26th May, to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Accrington (Major Procter).
