HC Deb 26 March 1968 vol 761 c235W
Mr. Gardner

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what further proposals he has for assisting local housing authorities in providing rent rebates to tenants with low incomes.

Mr. Greenwood

The Government intend that housing subsidies should be used in large part to provide rent rebates for tenants whose means are small. The Housing Subsidies Act, 1967 greatly increased the subsidies for new housebuilding by local authorities. I have no further proposals in view at present.
