§ Mr. Bruce-Gardyne
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he intends to take to ensure that percentage increases in rents in Scotland do not exceed the limit on percentage increases in council house rents recommended in Command Paper No. 3604.
§ Mr. Ross
As was announced in the White Paper on Productivity, Prices and Incomes Policy in 1968 and 1969, the legislation which the Government intend to introduce will empower me to make Regulations for phasing over a period not exceeding three years increases above a stipulated minimum amount in rents determined under the Rent Act, 1965.
