asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will issue a booklet giving guidance to tenants affected by the provisions of the Housing (Repairs and Rents) (Scotland) Bill, and including appropriate comment on the availability of legal aid.

I am arranging to publish a leaflet giving landlord and tenants guidance on the rent provisions of the Bill. There will also be available a more comprehensive booklet suitable for local authorities and citizens advice bureaux. Information about legal aid is already available in a separate leaflet and it is, I think, unnecessary to refer to this matter in the leaflet on the new legislation.
