HC Deb 03 May 1928 vol 216 c1889
24. Mr. DAY

asked the Minister of Health whether he can state the rents charged, exclusive of rates, for houses built with State assistance, under the Housing Act, which contain three rooms or more, and are controlled by either the London County Council, the Middlesex Council, the Essex County Council, or the Surrey County Council?


The rents (exclusive of rates) charged by the London County Council for houses containing three rooms or more vary from 8s. 6d. to 21s. 3d. a week according to the accommodation provided and the situation of the houses. County councils other than the London County Council do not provide houses except for persons in their own employment. The rents charged for such houses by the three councils named are as follow:

Per week.
s. d.
Middlesex County Council 10 6
Essex County Council 5 6
Surrey County Council 4 8

Can the right hon. Gentleman say what accommodation there is in a house rented at 21s. 3d.?


I must have notice of that question.
