HC Deb 14 January 1975 vol 884 c94W
Mr. Sproat

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the average length of time taken between application for, and granting of, registration of a fair rent; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. William Ross

The average time varies considerably, mainly with the rate of applications. Applications received at the end of December seem likely to be registered within about three months.
