§ 45. Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the estimated average council house rent increase following the issue of his consultation document; and what was the average for 1980–81.
§ Mr. Stanley
The average rent increase for 1980–81 was £1.60 per dwelling per week. The increase for 1981–82 will depend on the decisions of local authorities within the framework of the new subsidy system.
