HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 c609
44. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will make a survey of lands in the possession of the Scottish Home and Health Department, the Scottish Education Department and other departments of the Scottish Office, with a view to making a better economic use or sale of potential building land for which he is responsible, and which is currently underdeveloped.

Dr. Dickson Mabon

The land holdings of my right hon. Friend's Departments are kept under regular review.

Mr. Dalyell

Is my hon. Friend satisfied that the Scottish Office has sufficient incentive to disgorge surplus land?

Dr. Mabon

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has written to my hon. Friend the Member for West Lothian (Mr. Dalyell) on this subject today.
