HC Deb 06 April 1954 vol 526 c30W
Mr. Pryde

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the total amount of money paid by local authorities in Scotland as interest on housing loans in the years 1923 to 1953, inclusive.

Mr. J. Stuart

The amounts for the years 1951–52 and 1952–53 are estimated at £7,511,000 and £9,392,000 respectively. I regret that the figures for earlier years are not available.
