§ Mr. Ancram
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has now completed his consideration of the problems facing owner-occupiers improving their houses under the improvement grant but who are unable to complete their improvements timeously owing to shortages of materials; and whether he will extend the grant to allow such work to be completed.
