HC Deb 10 April 1981 vol 2 c367W
Mr. McMahon

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many telephones have been provided under section 2 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 in Scotland; and if he will give separate figures for the Glasgow area.

Mr. Fairgrieve

Figures available for the period 1 January 1973 to 31 March 1980 show that about 4,189 telephones were installed in Scotland, of which about 431 were in the area formerly covered by the city of Glasgow and at present covered by the Glasgow division of the social work department of Strathclyde regional council.
