asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the average domestic consumption of electricity units in the most recent annual period for which figures are available; and what was the average domestic annual bill.
The average domestic consumption of electricity and the aver-
redevelopment is given in the manual for local authorities on assessing housing needs, drawn up by a working party of central and local government officials, which is to be published next month as Part I of the Scottish Housing Handbook. The question was also one aspect of the Scottish Office research project whose report "Local Housing Needs and Strategies: A Case Study of Dundee SubRegion" (HMSO 1976) was published and drawn to the attention of local authorities in March 1976. I shall make a copy of the manual available in the Library in due course.
