HC Deb 07 April 1976 vol 909 cc202-3W
Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why local authorities are obliged to bear a higher percentage of rent rebates than of rate rebates; and if he will adjust both to 10 per cent.

Mr. William Ross

The arrangements in each case are in accordance with the statutory provisions. I am awaiting the outcome of the housing finance review before deciding whether the financial arrangements relating to housing should be amended.
