asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what would be the cost of supplying double windows in Swedish houses.

The construction of the outer wall in Swedish houses makes it impracticable to substitute double hung sash and case windows for the casement type at present fitted. The additional cost of installation in a new house is calculated to be about £20.

Can the Secretary of State say whether he has discovered any other methods of curing the faults in these windows which he admits exist?

I shall be glad to let the hon. Gentleman have the technical report on the subject.
