§ 7. Mr. Patrick Maitland
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he has in mind for remedying the anomaly which arises when the occupant of a subsidised house tied to agriculture ceases to be employed in any connection with the agricultural industry.
§ Mr. Henderson Stewart
The management of these houses, which are not tied houses in the usual sense, is a matter for the local authorities, and my right hon. Friend is prepared to trust their discretion to make the best use of them in the light of local circumstances.
