Stock transfers will bring in the necessary resources to improve the standard of accommodation. Such resources are not available through local government resources at present and are unlikely to be so. Stock transfers would bring in private sector investment to assist in the necessary repair and renovation projects, which would greatly reduce the number of cold and damp homes in Scotland.
