HC Deb 27 February 1968 vol 759 cc321-2W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many persons in Bristol have benefited by the rate rebate scheme since its inception to the latest available date.

Mr. Skeffington

In 1966–67, 10,600 Bristol ratepayers were granted rebates in the first half year and 12,300 in the second. The average rebate for the year was approximately £14 4s. associations but my right hon. Friend, when he has received the views of the associations on the Committee's many proposals, would certainly give any help in his power.
