asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many housing associations there are in Scotland and Glasgow, respectively; how many staff they employ; and how many houses they have improved, in respect of Scotland and Glasgow, respectively.

I understand from the Housing Corporation that of the 132 registered housing associations in Scotland 47 have registered offices in Glasgow. Information is not readily available about the number of staff whom they employ. From 1974 up to March 1977 some 745 houses had been improved by housing associations, including 326 in Glasgow.

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether it is his policy to encourage housing associations to manage their own property or to employ professional factors with experience of housing management.

The management of their property is a matter for the housing associations themselves.
