HC Deb 31 January 1956 vol 548 cc94-5W
67. Mr. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give an assurance that he will in all cases permit local councillors who live in council houses the right to vote on their respective councils on all questions concerning rent policy.

Mr. J. Stuart

My power to remove any disability imposed on members of local authorities by Section 73 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1947, is strictly limited by that Section, which requires each case to be considered in relation to the criteria laid down.
