HC Deb 17 December 1968 vol 775 c370W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what extent building regulations, practices and standards of local authorities in Scotland are being standardised; and to what extent and by what means he is assisting this process.

Mr. Ross

Building work throughout Scotland is uniformly subject to the Building Standards (Scotland) Regulations, 1963-67. In connection with the programme of metrication in the building industry, I am encouraging all concerned with building programmes to eliminate unnecessary variations of details which can inflate costs, and increasingly to use standardised components and methods without sacrificing flexibility of design.
