Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is able to give a broad estimate of the total sums expended by Scottish local authorities in servicing capital debt in the last financial year.

Mr. Millan

No estimate is yet available of the total loan charges paid by Scottish local authorities in 1976–77, but the loan charges on the debt outstanding on the rate fund services, including housing, are estimated to be £450 million.
