§ 27. Mr. William Hannan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has now given consideration to the Sidwell Report on the cost of house building in Scotland; what steps he now proposes; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Younger
Most of the issues raised in the Report are for consideration by the house building industry, and I have discussed the Report with representatives of that industry. The Scottish Building Standards Advisory Committee has also discussed the Report, and proposals for amending the Building Regulations are being considered.
