§ Mr. Robertson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the amount of money allocated to the Renfrew District Council under the terms of Section 105 of the Housing Act 1974; how many individual loans were given; and what percentage of the purchase price that amount represented.
§ Mr. Hugh D. Brown
Renfrew District Council was allocated £380,000 in 1975–76 for lending to individuals for house purchase and improvement under the Housing (Scotland) Act 1966. 136 individual loans were granted in that year. The average advance represented some 80 per cent. of valuation price.
