§ Mr. Davidson
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland, pursuant to his answer of 9 March 1999,Official Report, column 133, on care and repair grants, if he will break down the sum spent from revenue funding in 1997–98 by local authority. 
§ Mr. Macdonald
The total value of works completed in 1997–98 was around £6 million, covering some 1,400 homes. Revenue funding in 1997–98 amounted to £1.2 million. Scottish Homes and Local Authorities normally fund the revenue costs on a 50/50 basis. However, the break-down by local authority is not held centrally.
From 1 July 1999, this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
