HC Deb 07 June 1989 vol 154 c176W
14. Mr. Gow

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many houses and flats are owned by local authorities in Scotland; and what proposals he has to give to their tenants the opportunities to become owner occupiers.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

Returns by local authorities indicate that, at 30 September 1988, local authorities in Scotland owned some 808,000 houses and flats.

In the light of the continuing success of the Government's right-to-buy policy, we have no plans at present to change the current statutory arrangements.
