Timing is everything in politics. I gave Mary Scanlon a commitment that I would meet Andrew Bradford and I met him yesterday. Despite some of the politics and the prejudices that I hear around me, in meeting housing needs in Scotland, the Executive is prepared to consider all options and nobody will be turned away from a minister's door if they have constructive options to offer us. I met Andrew Bradford, my Executive will look in depth at the analysis and the options that he has provided to us and we will make decisions on that in the best interests of public money and housing supply in Scotland.
