HC Deb 06 May 1927 vol 205 c1907W
Lieut.-Colonel HORLICK

asked the Minister of Health what is the average loss per house per annum on Addison houses; and what action is being taken to revise the rents of such houses with a view to decreasing the loss to taxpayers and ratepayers?


The average annual loss per house in respect of houses erected by local authorities under the terms of the 1919 Act is estimated at £46 per annum. The rents of these houses, which have been fixed in accordance with rules made under the Housing Act, 1919, are brought under review from time to time.
