§ 21. Mr. Eadie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has received a request from the Housing Corporation for additional funds as a consequence of it giving approval to the Castle Rock housing association to pay Lothian Estates substantial amounts of public money for houses in Newtongrange.
§ Mr. Younger
The funds allocated annually to the Housing Corporation are for an approved development programme which provides for categories of projects. It is for the corporation to decide which projects can be accommodated within the total resources for their development programme. I do not, therefore, receive requests for funds from the Housing Corporation for individual projects.
