HC Deb 21 July 1982 vol 28 c181W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, in view of the substantial administrative costs incurred by local authorities as a consequence of the compulsory sale of council houses, he will take steps to provide for the reimbursement of those costs.

Mr. Allan Stewart

Housing support grant settlements in recent years have taken account of all the relevant evidence as to management costs which COSLA has produced, including evidence of costs related to the implementation of the Tenants' Rights etc. (Scotland) Act 1980.
