HC Deb 12 July 1972 vol 840 cc340-1W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is satisfied that all local authorities are meeting the statutory requirements under Section 1(2) of the Housing (Scotland) Act, 1969; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I have no reason to believe that local authorities are not observing these requirements. It is normal practice for local authorities to offer alternative accommodation, in council houses, to persons displaced in slum clearance operations or for house improvement.
