Mr. Sarwar

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what estimate he has made of the number of houses affected by dampness in Scotland. [35898]

Mr. Macdonald

I refer my hon. Friend to the report of the 1996 Scottish House Condition Survey, a copy of which is in the Library. The Survey estimated that some 177,000 dwellings in Scotland were affected by dampness, representing 8 per cent. of the total occupied housing stock.
