HC Deb 02 March 1971 vol 812 c401W
Mr. James Hill

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will take steps to correct the discrepancy between council and private landlords, whereby, after modernisation of their properties, the fair rent for private landlords has to be phased over five years; while council landlords are permitted an immediate 12½ per cent. increase in rent.

Mr. Amery

I will bear in mind the considerations referred to by my hon. Friend in my plans for the reform of housing finance.
