The number of tenancies in occupation in each Scottish new town corporation and Scottish Homes from the period 1988-89 to 1992-93 was listed by Social Security Minister Alistair Burt in a written answer (col 380-384).

The number of cases in receipt of rent rebate, the percentage in receipt of rent rebate and figures on total housing benefit expenditure and the number of cases of overpayment, the amount of overpayment, overpayment as a percentage of total expenditure, the number of cases of backdated payment, the amount of backdated benefit, the backdated amount as a percent of total expenditure, amounts of discretionary payments and discretionary amounts as percentage of total expenditure for the same period are also listed.

In another written answer Scottish Minister Lord James Douglas- Hamilton (col 448) explains that the main role of the Scottish independent Housing Association Tenants Ombudsman for Scotland to be appointed on December 1 will be to investigate complaints covering allegations of maladministration in all registered housing associations in Scotland.

The Ombudsman will have no specific powers, but findings in favour of tenants can be followed up by Scottish Homes under its existing powers of supervision. The non-statutory basis of the appointment will be kept under review.
