Scottish Council House Completions Six Times Higher Per Head Than England

"While private housebuilding in England is running at around twice the rate, pro rata of that in Scotland, the crucial local authority supply lags well behind. Comparing the 1 451 completions in Scotland with the 2 560 completions reported in England for the same year we get a very sad picture. With ten times the population you might expect around 14 500 completions but there were only 2 560, 1.76 times the rate and thus nearly six times worse."
