§ Mr. Greenwood
Local authorities are not required to notify me of rent increases but ninety-nine local authorities in England have informed me that they intend to raise their council house rents during 1967. The precentage increases are not available.
§ Mr. Judd
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many local authorities in England and Wales are encouraging the sale of council houses to existing tenants; what are 118W problems, I have decided to increase the present grant of £1,750 a year to £5,000 a year for a period of three years from 1st April,1967.
