§ 77. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has received from the National House Builders' Registration Council (Scotland) their letter of 1st July, 1969, and their report and comparative study of owner-occupation in Scotland as contrasted with England and Wales; and if he will state his plans for improving owner-occupation in view of the recommendations there offered to him.
§ Dr. Dickson Mabon
My right hon. Friend has received this Report and is considering it. The Government are taking steps to up-date the option mortgage scheme, and we will continue to do everything we can to remove hindrances to private house building.
