HC Deb 24 May 1974 vol 874 c339W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will seek to amend the Burgh Police (Scotland) Act 1892 to enable local authorities to reimbuse tenants who incur expense due to street renaming and renumbering.

Mr. William Ross

No. The Act does not impose any liability in respect of street naming or house numbering on tenants; only on local authorities and house owners.
