HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 c108W
85. Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he adheres to his estimate of 30th December, 1970 of the range for average fair rents per region in 1973–74 and 1976–77.

Mr. Channon

The estimates referred to by the hon. Member were provided to representatives of the local authority associations only as a very approximate basis for estimating the total new subsidies which might be payable under the provisions of the Housing Finance Bill.
