HC Deb 19 June 1974 vol 875 c147W
26. Mr. Douglas Henderson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what arrangements he is making to ensure that additional housing is provided to meet the demand in areas affected by oil developments.

Mr. Millan

My right hon. Friend gives local authorities every encouragement to build houses to meet needs in areas affected by oil development and they have large programmes under way. To assist them, the Scottish Special Housing Association has been authorised to build 4,600 houses representing direct Government investment of well over £50 million.
