asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many tenants of Liverpool city council currently have their rent paid direct by his Department; and what is the total sum involved for 1983–84.

The provisions for the direct payment of rent to landlords by this Department ceased with the introduction of housing benefit in April 1983.
