asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the fact that the population of Glenrothes is expected to be 18,000 in about 20 years, he can indicate at what stage in that development the corporation will be wound up; and whether there will be any redundancy in the next five years.

The New Towns Act enables a new town corporation to be disbanded when the purposes for which it was established have been largely achieved. It is not yet possible to say when this stage will be reached at Glenrothes.On the question of staff redundancy, I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to his Question of 16th March.
