§ 10. Mr. WILLIAM O'BRIEN
asked whether the Local Government Board have now ascertained the average rent charged for houses built under the Houses of the Working Classes (Ireland) Act; and how many of those houses are let at a rent under 2s. a week?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
From the information furnished by local authorities it would appear that the average weekly rent charged for houses erected since the passing of the Housing of the Working Classes (Ireland) Act, 1908, is 3s. 4d. Twenty-eight houses are let at rents under 2s. a week.
