To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many dwellings were completed by local authorities and new towns in Scotland in 1988.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
Although a number of returns have yet to be received, we estimate that almost 2,000 dwellings were completed by local authorities in Scotland in 1988. Returns submitted by new town development corporations indicate that 257 dwellings were completed during the year.
