HC Deb 10 November 1970 vol 806 cc100-1W
Mr. Boyden

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many local authorities have raised council house rents since 1st July, 1970.

Mr. Channon

Four English authorities have made general rent increases requiring my agreement. Two other authorities have made increases affecting a small number of their dwellings. Thirty-six authorities have notified me of increases made which do not need my agreement.
