§ Mrs. Irene Adams
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many mortgage repossessions there have been in(a) Strathclyde region and (b) Renfrew district during each of the past 12 months for which records are available; and what were the annual figures for each of the past 12 months.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
This information is not available in the form requested. The Council of Mortgage Lenders publishes statistics in their regular newsletters on various aspects of mortgage lending by building societies but this is on a Great Britain basis and no corresponding information is available for Scotland only. No information about other mortgage lenders is held centrally.
