asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) what is the total amount of the housing subsidies payable in Scotland in the current year; and what is the estimated amount payable in the next three years;(2) what is the total amount of subsidy payable in the current year in respect of housing accommodation for the agricultural population; and what is the estimated amount payable in the next three years.

The total amount of housing subsidies estimated to be payable in the financial year 1961–62 is £19,704,240. Of this, £181,425 is in respect of permanent housing for the agricultural population (including that provided privately). I am not at present in a position to provide estimates for future years.
