HC Deb 30 June 1971 vol 820 cc113-4W
42. Mrs. Doris Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment in the Government's scheme for fair rents, what advice will be given to local authorities who operate rent-pooling arrangements, whereby contributions made by older council houses help finance newer council properties.

Mr. Channon

Rent pooling is not an appropriate method of determining the fair rent because the fair rent depends on the quality of the dwelling itself.
