HC Deb 11 March 1981 vol 1000 cc357-8W
Mr. Tilley

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what information he has as to the number of local authorities which have sold council dwellings to sitting tenants and have been obliged to repurchase dwellings because the mortgagor cannot fulfil his obligations.

Mr. Rifkind

This information is not available centrally. I have, however, seen no evidence that the situation to which the hon. Member refers has arisen in Scotland on a significant scale.
