Mr. Peyton

Mr. Channon

The association has been told that the Government have already given substantial help to council tenants during stage 2 by increasing the needs allowances in the rent rebate scheme at a cost of some £30 million this year, and that a deferment of council rent increases would only prolong anomalies in rent structures, which the Housing Finance Act is designed to end.
