Many local authorities have done so in recent years, and I hope that others will consider this means of achieving a reasonable level of rents without hardship to individual tenants.
§ Dr. Mabon
This is entirely a matter for local authorities. There has been a steady increase in the number of Scottish authorities operating rent rebate schemes. The last published rent return showed that one in three of all authorities, covering 60 per cent. of all council houses in Scotland, operated rent rebate schemes.
