§ 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.]
