§ Mr. William Price
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he proposes that the 7s. 6d. maximum on council rents will apply to houses let by county councils.
§ Mr. MacColl
The principle of moderation as regards rent increases should be observed as far as practicable by county councils as well as local housing authorities. Provision has been made in the Prices and Incomes Bill for the extension to county council houses, if necessary, of the proposed powers to limit rent increases.
