HC Deb 06 November 1970 vol 805 c494W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what extent he intends to reduce the subsidies on public authority houses.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment said in the House on Tuesday, 3rd November, subsidies from public funds are to be directed towards those who need them. The amount of subsidies in the future will therefore depend on needs.
