§ Mr. G. Campbell
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many local authorities in Scotland now operate differential rent rebate schemes for their houses.
§ Mr. Ross
In 1965 such schemes were operated by 88 local authorities who together owned 78 per cent. of all council houses in Scotland. The Annual Rent Return for Scotland, shortly to be presented to Parliament, will give more information about these schemes, which are within the sole discretion of the local authority concerned.
