HC Deb 30 January 1945 vol 407 c1300W
Mr. McNeil

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what local rate contribution is payable by a local authority in whose area the Scottish Special Housing Association erect dwellings under the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1938.

Mr. Johnston

The Housing (Scotland) Act, 1944, under which the Scottish Special Housing Association now operates, provides that the Association will receive from the Exchequer the equivalent of the normal Exchequer and local rate contributions in respect of houses which they build. No question therefore arises of any local rate contribution being made by local authorities.
