HC Deb 27 April 1983 vol 41 cc351-2W
50. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what reply he has made to the representations by the Kirkcaldy district council objecting to proposals by the building firm of Barratts, Edinburgh, to build one-apartment flats in the area which fall below basic minimum accepted housing standards as specified in the Building Standards (Scotland) Regulations 1981.

Mr. Allan Stewart

Kirkcaldy district council has been informed of my right hon. Friend's decision to relax regulation Q5—space standards—in respect of "Studio Solo" flats for the reasons given to the council in my Department's letter of 7 September 1982, of which I sent the hon. Member a copy.
