HC Deb 06 February 1963 vol 671 c60W
46. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the average rent of a local authority house at the latest available date; and what is the increase over the figure for May, 1962.

Mr. Leburn

The recent Rent Return (Cmnd. 1923) gives the average standard rent of permanent local authority houses at 28th November, 1962, as £31 16s. 3d. (12s. 3d. per week) before allowing for rebates and surcharges. The May return covering about 90 per cent. of the houses showed an average rent of £30 13s. 2d. (11 s. 10d. per week).
