§ Mr. Ian Campbell
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the number of housing associations established in Scotland; and how many houses these associations have built in each of the last three years.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
The information readily available to me relates to housing associations and housing societies which are in receipt of subsidies for building or improving houses; and housing societies which have had advances from me or from the Housing Corporation.
There are 118 such associations and societies; and they built 244 houses in 1970, 332 in 1971, and 413 in 1972.
