§ Mr. Dempsey
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what accommodation he has approved for new old folk's homes at Coatbridge; and what are the sites for building, the costs and starting dates for these new projects.
§ Mr. Ross
Coatbridge Town Council has acquired four sites for new old folk's homes at East Shawhead, Townhead, Old Monkland Road and Findlaystone Street. I have approved plans to provide homes for 52 and 30 residents at the first two sites and costs are now being discussed. Starting dates are not yet known.
