HC Deb 07 April 1971 vol 815 cc121-2W
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.
