HC Deb 21 April 1971 vol 815 cc398-9W
Mr. Sproat

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his estimate of the number of persons living in private accommodation who will get housing subsidies in the first full year of operation of the Government's proposals for the reform of housing finance and to what sum these subsidies will amount.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The amount of rent allowances, and the number of tenants eligible for them, will depend on the details of the national scheme of rent rebates and allowances. These are still being discussed with the local authority associations.
