asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the number of houses which have been (1) approved, (2) started, and (3) completed, in both the public and private sectors, respectively, during the most recent three-month period for which figures are available; and what were the comparable figures for each of the previous five years.

I refer the hon. Member to the figures of houses started and completed as published in the Housing Return for Scotland at 31st March in each of the years in question. Houses in the private sector do not require my approval. Those approved in the public sector are as follows:

January—MarchPublic Sector Houses Approved
* Provisional.
