§ Mr. Ernie Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many local authorities in Scotland have been found to be in default of their statutory duties since regionalisation; and if he will list the total number of instances.
§ Mr. Rifkind
I know of one such instance. The city of Dundee district council was found earlier this year to be in default of its statutory duties under part I of the Tenants' Rights Etc. (Scotland) Act 1980.
