HC Deb 20 November 1950 vol 481 c16W
Sir W. Darling

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, to encourage National Savings, he is prepared to consider a scheme whereby occupants of five years or longer of municipally-owned houses should have the opportunity of buying them from the local authority on an appropriate and convenient instalment plan; and if he is prepared to allow, as an experiment, selected local authorities to inaugurate the proposal by giving them permission to sell a limited number of houses to those who desire to purchase them.

Mr. McNeil

I regret I cannot add to the reply given to the hon. Member on 24th October.
