asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that complaints about dampness and condensation in Lawrence houses made by tenants of the East Kilbride Development Corporation in the Westwood and Murray neighbourhoods are not confined to, and do not always originate in. complaints about the larders, but in some cases relate to other parts of the house, including hall cupboards and upstairs rooms; to how many houses these complaints relate; and what remedial measures are now being undertaken.

About 30 houses of the type in question have been the subject of complaints for the reasons specified by my hon. Friend. I am informed that remedial work on these houses to eliminate these defects has been completed and that, provided the houses are adequately ventilated by the tenants, no further trouble on these grounds is expected.
