Limiting the right to buy (in Scotland)?

The SNP have announced that they intend to abolish the right to buy for all new build council and social housing in Scotland. The policy is intended to safeguard up to 18,000 social homes.

Figures in England show a steep decline in interest in the right to buy and it is hard to see that the last year will have altered that situation. I wonder if something similar may now happen in England and Wales, given that some Councils are building again?
