HC Deb 15 July 1986 vol 101 cc503-4W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the average cost per week of rent and any subsidy paid by the Exchequer to the Northern Ireland Housing Executive of a single person's accommodation rented from the Northern Ireland Housing Executive.

Mr. Needham

The smallest unit of accommodation now built by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive is designed for two persons, although it may be allocated to a single person. The average weekly rent charged for such one-bedroom accommodation built during 1985–86 is £13.59 while the average weekly economic rent would be £60.28.
