§ 42. Mr. McInnes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is now satisfied that the Housing (Repairs and Rents) (Scotland) Act, 1954, is serving the purpose for which it was designed; and if he will make a statement.
The Act has been in operation for only five months and it is too early yet to judge its effects.
§ Mr. McInnes
Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that: this Act was designed to placate the factors and 898 property owners, and that they have now forecast its failure? Will he agree with the Opposition that the Act should never have been introduced at all?
