asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what complaints he has received from tenants of the Myton Clyde houses built by the Scottish Special Housing Association at New Cummock, Ayrshire; what inquiries he has made; and what steps are being taken to deal with the complaints.

I received complaints in February about water penetration in these houses. I found on inquiry that the Scottish Special Housing Association had received earlier complaints and had asked the contractors to try out a number of different remedies. Several experiments were unsuccessful, but one at present being tried holds out prospects of success.
