asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is able to estimate from present trends the number of new public and private sector houses to be built during 1975.

I am not willing to make forecasts, but the higher numbers of houses approved, started and under construction during the past year should result in more completions in the public sector in 1975.Completions of private sector houses are likely to be influenced by the reduced number started in 1974. The Government recently announced measures designed to encourage a continuing high level of demand for new private houses.
