§ 29. Dr. Dickson Mabon
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many individual applications have been made to him to date by local authorities in Scotland under Section 5 of the Local Employment Act; and how many derelict sites have been cleared as a consequence of these applications to date.
§ Lady Tweedsmuir
Of the 60 applications submitted, 40 have been approved finally or in principle, and 14 are under consideration. Nine schemes have been completed, and work is in 85W progress on six. In addition some 200 proposals have been the subject of preliminary submission, of which approximately half are likely to be eligible for grant on the submission of satisfactory detailed schemes.
