§ 18. Mr. McQuarrie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he proposes to take to ensure that occupants of housing association houses will be permitted the right to purchase under the Tenants Rights (Scotland) Act.
§ Mr. Ancram
I have asked the Housing Corporation to require all associations which have not already instituted a voluntary sales scheme with discounts to reconsider, and formally report on, their policies. The responses of the associations will shortly be to hand and my right hon. Friend and I shall consider them carefully.
