§ Mr. Craigen
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what assessment his Department has made of the remedial work required to Reema and Bison system building blocks in Scotland; and what discussions he has had with Glasgow and other Scottish local authorities over the costs involved.52W
§ Mr. Ancram
The assessment of remedial work required for local authority housing is the responsibility of the authorities concerned, and the Department has had no recent discussions with any authority over costs involved in particular cases involving Reema and Bison systems. My right hon. Friend would expect local authorities to take all such factors into account in preparing their housing programmes, on which annual allocations are based.
