asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will introduce legislation to allocate responsibility to local authorities for the maintenance of gardens of the elderly and disabled.

No. I understand that, in most areas, district and regional councils find existing legislation an adequate basis for making arrangements for the maintenance of the gardens of the elderly and disabled. I am aware that there are difficulties within Lothian region, but this is a matter for the local authorities concerned to resolve.
