While being sure that Provost Murray will listen to the hon. Member for West Stirlingshire (Mr. Canavan) more readily than he will to certain members of his own party, may I ask the Minister to look carefully at the comparison between district council house rents in the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth district and those for comparable houses owned by the Government-controlled SSHA and Cumbernauld Development Corporation in the area? If he does, he will find that the rent levels there are substantially higher than district council rents.
