asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how much money has been granted, to some recent convenient date, to local authorities under Section 2 (1) of the Housing (Scotland) Act, 1949; how much by local authorities under Section 9 (1) of the Act; whether he has given any directions under Section 9 (7); and what contribution he has made to local authorities under Section 14.

At 30th September my right hon. Friend had undertaken to make contributions under Section 2 (1) amounting to £383 a year for 20 years for the improvement or provision of 31 dwellings by local authorities, and local authorities had undertaken to pay grants under Section 9 (1) amounting to £37,298 for the improvement or provision of 157 dwellings. No directions have been given under Section 9 (7) and no contributions have yet been claimed under Section 14.
