HC Deb 25 October 1973 vol 861 cc684-5W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will allow local authority grants, rather than loans, to be paid to small Scottish hoteliers to enable them to comply with the Fire Precautions Act.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

No. I would refer the hon. Member to what was said by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department on 23rd January last.
