§ Mr. Tom McMillan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of the run down in house building in Glasgow, if he will take steps to provide additional financial assistance to Glasgow Corporation.
§ Mr. Ross
The Government have given massive help towards the solution of Glasgow's housing problems by arranging for building by the Scottish Special Housing Association within the City, for building by the Development Corporations in the New Towns, and for overspill building elsewhere. In addition Glasgow benefited financially from changes made in 1969 to the Rate Support Grant formula. Substantial further help has been offered at Erskine and elsewhere, but this has been delayed by a change in the Corporation's attitude.
