Dr. J. Dickson Mahon

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state for the calendar years beginning in 1980 the number of new housing completions planned by the Scottish Special Housing Association in its present five year rolling programme.

Mr. Younger

The only point I have to add to my reply of 14 February to the right hon. Member is that the association was informed on 21 February that the cash limit on its capital expenditure in 1980–81 will be £42 million at outturn prices.—[Vol. 978, c. 780.] Figures for annual completions are not available; a large part of the asociation's programme is, in any case, rehabilitation rather than new building.
