§ Mr. Maclean
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether any report will be issued by him of the transactions and decisions of the conferences on rural housing which have been arranged by his Department between the Scottish Department for Health and the Association of County Councils to deal with the recommendations of the Scottish Housing Advisory Committee?
§ Mr. Elliot
The purpose of the meeting, which took place on the 13th July, was to enable me to obtain the views of the county councils on the recommendations of the Scottish Housing Advisory Committee in their Report on Rural Housing. I am considering the views expressed at the meeting but I am not yet in a position to make any statement regarding them. I hope, however, at an early date to issue a circular to county councils on the recommendations which can be carried out administratively and I will send a copy to the hon. Member.
