HC Deb 16 March 1976 vol 907 cc498-9W
Mr. Reid

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) what allowances are currently available in Scotland for a car port for wheelchair housing and for a hard-standing for mobility or wheelchair housing;

(2) what ceilings he has set for expenditure by local authorities or housing associations in Scotland on wheelchair and mobility houses for the disabled; and by what sums these exceed what may presently be spent on ordinary dwellings of the same size.

Mr. William Ross

Indicative costs published by my Department for public sector houses are supplemented as necessary by special allowances to meet the requirements of wheelchair users, including the need for car accommodation. The appropriate allowances are determined on submission of individual housing proposals.
