§ Mr. R. Gibson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will give the names of the local authorities which provide telephones in the homes of their councillors; and, in each case, how far the expense incurred in connection with these telephones is borne by the local authority?
§ Mr. Elliot
I have consulted the three associations of local authorities in Scotland and they are not aware of any authorities which provide telephones in the houses of their councillors. I understand that the larger authorities provide telephones in their offices for the use of councillors on official business.
