Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many housing association houses which are (a) rented houses and (b) co-ownership houses have been sold to sitting tenants or co-owners, respectively, giving the latest figures; and in each case what these figures represent as a percentage of (i) all rented houses and (ii) all co-ownership houses in Scotland belonging to housing associations.

Mr. Allan Stewart

Five rented houses and 1,064 co-ownership houses in the ownership of registered housing associations have been sold to sitting tenants and co-owners respectively up till 15 December 1982. These sales account for less than 1 per cent. and 39 per cent. of the total stock of houses owned by associations in each category.
