HC Deb 06 July 1971 vol 820 cc368-9W
Mr. Dempsey

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the nature of the reply he received after June, 1970, from Lanark County Council to the Scottish Development Department Circular 63/1968, Section, Other Applicants, recommending the adoption of points schemes for house letting.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

This circular invited any local authority which considered that the policies it outlined were not applicable in its district to inform the Scottish Development Department. Lanark County Council has not so informed the Department, and I hope, therefore, that it is implementing the suggestions made in the circular.
