HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 cc112-3W
Mr. Buchanan-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has had from local authorities following his offer of 40 per cent. grant towards the cost of strengthening multistorey blocks of flats; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. Ross

Six authorities have written representing that the grant offered is inadequate. Authorities have already been told that my noble friend the Joint Parliamentary Under Secretary of State will meet them to discuss matters arising from the offer.
