§ 62. Mr. Grimond
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that housing shortages are holding up development in various areas of Shetland; if he will consider adding special provisions for this in the winter works programme; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
Special provision for this under the public works programme is not needed. The county council is to discuss with my Department146W next week proposals to build a substantial number of houses in various places for industrial development, and it will be given every encouragement to do so.
