133. Mr. Mathers

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has now considered the report of the Scottish Housing Advisory Committee regarding the allocation of house tenancies by local authorities; and if he will say what conclusions he has reached thereanent.

Mrs. Mann

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will make a statement about the Scottish Housing Advisory Committee's report on local authorities' methods of allocating tenancies.

Mr. McNeil

The Report is being published today under the title "Choosing Council Tenants" and copies have been placed in the Vote Office.

I am indebted to the Committee for the careful study which they have made of this important subject.

I realise that not all the Committee's views and recommendations will be generally acceptable to local authorities, in whose hands the letting of houses rests, but I am sending copies of the Report to the authorities so that they may give it the close study which it deserves.

Forward to
