§ 63. Dr. Dickson Mabon
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the total amount of expenditure set aside for housing improvements in Scotland in the current financial year; and what are the estimates for 1972–73 and 1973–74.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
Public capital expenditure on improvement is made up of grants paid by local authorities and expenditure by public authorities on their own improvement work. Allowing for the effect of the recently introduced Bill, I estimate that such capital expenditure could reach £20 million in 1971–72, and £25 million in each of the two following years.
