HC Deb 16 February 1973 vol 850 c448W
Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what special assistance he proposes to make available to Scottish local authorities faced with urgent demands for short- and long-term housing facilities.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The new subsidy arrangements give local authorities every encouragement to build to meet need wherever it arises. Where houses are required to meet economic expansion, I am prepared to consider authorising assistance by the Scottish Special Housing Association.
