HC Deb 09 June 1967 vol 747 cc284-5W
Mr. William Wilson

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many cases have been referred to the rent officer in Coventry under the Rent Act, 1966; and in how many cases a reduction in rent has been agreed by the parties or ordered by the rent assessment committee.

Mr. MacColl

201 applications for registration of rent had been made to the rent officer for Coventry up to 2nd June, 1967 and of these 170 had been determined. The original rent was reduced in 57 cases, unchanged in 46 and increased in 67. Six cases were referred to a committee, who in each case determined a rent above that determined by the rent officer but still below the original rent.
