HC Deb 01 May 1963 vol 676 c103W
38. Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he is taking to establish co-operation among Scottish local authorities to obtain the maximum advantage of modern techniques in the house building industry.

Mr. Noble

My Department followed up the report which was circulated to local authorities in February, by meetings with authorities, new town corporations, and the Scottish Special Housing Association. Individual authorities are now providing information about their particular problems and objectives, and on the basis of this information, I shall seek to bring together those groups of authorities who can most usefully co-operate in various aspects of this matter.
