HC Deb 18 June 1973 vol 858 c49W
Mr. McElhone

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give a further estimate of the number of tenants paying a nil rent under the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act 1972; and if he will categorise the number by widows, pensioners and long-term unemployed.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I have nothing to add to the reply I gave the hon. Member on 2nd May when I estimated there would be several thousands, excluding those whose total rent is met by supplementary benefit.—[Vol. 855, c.309.]
