HC Deb 28 June 1971 vol 820 cc58-60W
Mr. Oswald

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will seek powers to impose standards for, and permit inspection of, temporary accommodation provided for immigrant potato pickers.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Section 171 of the Housing (Scotland) Act, 1966, already requires local authorities to make byelaws with respect to accommodation for seasonal workers, covering standards of accommodation and inspection.
