HC Deb 29 January 1964 vol 688 c52W
59. Mr. Doig

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that many Scottish tenants are receiving notices to buy their houses, which are often in a bad state of repair and lacking bathrooms; and, in view of the fact that under the Rent Act, 1957, the alternative to purchase in these cases is eviction, whether he will now introduce legislation to repeal that Act in Scotland.

Mr. Noble
