HC Deb 26 January 1999 vol 324 c180W
20. Mr. Nigel Griffiths

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on housing policy in Scotland. [65847]

Mr. Macdonald

As I announced on 23 November, we shall shortly be publishing a Green Paper on housing in Scotland. The Green Paper will be the first major policy document on Scottish housing in over a decade and will provide a sound basis for the new Scottish Parliament to develop its own policies and programmes. From 1 July 1999 this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
