Does the Minister accept that, as the hon. Member for Dunbartonshire, East (Mrs. Bain) said, there is a feeling of injustice in areas where tenants of the SSHA and new town houses and district council tenants live in comparable houses but pay different rents?

Bearing in mind the action that has been taken on percentage increases, will the hon. Gentleman address his mind to the hardship that will be caused to every council tenant and owner-occupier in Scotland if there are to be rate increases of over 15 per cent. this year?
