Question S1W-34633

To ask the Scottish Executive whether it has been asked by any party to provide financial assistance towards any compensation scheme for the homeowners of properties in the Ainslie Road and Macclehose Road area of the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth constituency and, if so, which parties made such requests, when and what its response was to each request.

The North Lanarkshire Council has asked the Scottish Executive to assist with the costs that would be involved should they proceed with a scheme to acquire and demolish the flats at Ainslie Road and Macclehose Road and rehouse the residents or provide assistance to acquire other accommodation. The council wrote to me in September 2002 to request assistance and I replied in October 2002 agreeing in principle to assist. The final decision will depend on the details of the council’s proposals when they are received.
