HC Deb 24 May 1972 vol 837 cc370-1W
43. Mr. William Hannan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will consult the local authorities with a view to providing an increase in the number of residential homes and sheltered housing for the elderly.

Mr. Younger

I recently asked local authorities to consider afresh the need for building more sheltered housing in their areas and to make proposals covering the next six years.
