§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representation he has received that the Burgh of Rutherglen should be given special assistance to deal with the housing problem; and what reply he has sent.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
Discussions are proceeding with officials of the burgh about the extent of the town's housing need and possible measures to provide land to meet it. It has been represented to me that the burgh's housing need also creates a special financial problem and I am studying this suggestion.
