HC Deb 17 July 1974 vol 877 c182W
Mr. D. E. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what was the average weekly rent paid by households in local authority accommodation in Wales for each year 1966 to 1973.

Mr. John Morris

This information is not available before 1968. For 1968 and subsequent years the data are as follows:

Average unrebated rent in local authority dwellings in Wales
March 1968 1.89
March 1969 2.01
March 1970 2.13
April 1971 2.39
April 1972 2.64
May 1973 3.25

In each case the rent has been calculated for a particular rent week in the relevant month.
