HC Deb 29 November 1972 vol 847 c138W
51. Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many council tenants are currently receiving rent rebate; and how this compares with the Government's original estimate of those who would apply for and qualify for such rebate.

Mr. Eyre

This information is not available. But preliminary figures quoted by a number of local authorities broadly confirm our original estimate of about 35 per cent. to 40 per cent.
