“The rate of house building in Scotland last year outstripped figures for England, Wales and Northern Ireland”, according to SNP Minister, Kevin Stewart.
There were 15,954 new homes built and completed in Scotland in 2015
The above is tantamount to 297 built per 100,000 population

SNP Housing Minister, Kevin Stewart said the following while commenting on Social Security and Equalities in the Scottish Parliament, SCN reports:

“The SNP in government is building more homes per head of population than England by some 14% and more homes than Wales by over 35%. In other words, by setting our sights higher than England, in government we’ve built new homes equivalent to a town the size of Paisley since 2007.
“On top of smashing our own targets in delivering 33,949 affordable homes over the last parliament we’re setting ourselves ambitious goals – promising at least 50,000 more affordable homes in the next 5 years.
“Increasing the availability of new affordable homes in Scotland is absolutely central to the bold agenda for a fairer, more socially just Scotland upon which the SNP was re-elected last month – and regardless of what is going on elsewhere, the SNP is getting on with the job of delivering for Scotland in government.”
