§ 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.

§ 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.
