Mr. Ron Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many times he has stayed at his official Edinburgh residence since 3 May 1979; and how much the residence costs to run per annum.

Mr. Younger

Since taking office I have stayed frequently at my official residence in Edinburgh. Running costs for 1978–79, the latest year for which figures are available, were approximately £10,400.
