§ Mr. Cartwright
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what research he has commissioned on local authority rent structures and rent fixing procedures; whether this has been completed; and when he expects to publish it.
§ Mr. Stanley
A research contract was placed with the Institute of Housing to study local authority rent structures on 1 November 1980. A report was received at the end of May 1982, and an article based on it is being prepared for publication in the institute's journal "Housing".
