§ 49. Mr. David Stoddart
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in his restructuring of council house subsidies, he will give an assurance that all existing subsidy arrangements will be carried out.
§ Mr. Channon
The existing distribution of subsidies is not compatible with a reformed system of housing finance under which the rents of council dwellings will be based on the fair rents principle with generous rebates for those tenants who cannot afford the full fair rent.
