HC Deb 12 November 1969 vol 791 c88W
59. Mr. Buchanan-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the number of houses he estimates will be built in the private sector in Scotland during the year 1970.

Mr. Ross

I cannot make a firm forecast. The number of houses completed in the first nine months of 1969 was 29,268 and the total for the full year will depend on how many of the 56,360 under construction at 30th September are completed in the last quarter.
