asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the date when he received the resolution of the Scottish Labour Party Conference urging that a Bill should be introduced in order to prevent the further sale of flats and all tenement occupied houses; the date on which he received a similar resolution from the Scottish Trades Union Congress; the number of resolutions received from other organisations urging action; and when he intends to introduce such a Bill.
I received the resolution of the Scottish Labour Party Conference in October last year. I have not received such a resolution from the Scottish Trades Union Congress. Taking into account all Scottish organisations, some of them understandably not very large, I have received nine other submissions on this subject. I am not in a position to say when a Bill will be introduced.
