HC Deb 08 February 1967 vol 740 c339W
Mr. Doig

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will introduce legislation, on the lines proposed for England, to prevent landlords from evading the Rent Act, 1965, by granting leases for more than 21 years.

Mr. Ross

There is no need for me to do so. In Scotland landlords cannot get round the Act in this way because the statutory provisions excluding such leases from rent control do not apply.
