asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the amount spent on clearing derelict areas from October, 1964, until the latest convenient date; and what were the comparable figures for a similar period up to October, 1964.

Dr. Dickson Mabon

From March, 1960, when grants first became available, to October, 1964, 46 schemes had been completed or were in progress, costing just over £1 million.

From October, 1964, to December, 1968, work had been completed or was in progress on 111 schemes costing £3¼ million, and a further 12 schemes estimated to cost £¾ million were approved for grant purposes.
