HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 c231W
Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proportion of the £130 million, to which home loans by local authorities have been restricted, will be available to local authorities in Scotland; and how this total compares with actual outgoings by Scottish local authorities on this service during the years 1963 and 1964, adjusted to constant prices.

Mr. Ross

The figure of £130 million applies to England and Wales. As Scottish local authorities lent only about £4 million in each of the years mentioned, we have not so far asked them to keep within a quantitative limit.
