HC Deb 11 February 1966 vol 724 c149W
Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many local authorities in Scotland now operate differential rent rebate schemes for their houses.

Mr. Ross

In 1965 such schemes were operated by 88 local authorities who together owned 78 per cent. of all council houses in Scotland. The Annual Rent Return for Scotland, shortly to be presented to Parliament, will give more information about these schemes, which are within the sole discretion of the local authority concerned.
