§ Mr. Tony Banks
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the average local authority rent in each London borough for each year since 1980 with the percentage increase for each year in real terms.
§ Sir George Young
I have today placed in the Library a table showing the average local weekly unrebated rent for each London borough in financial years since 1988–89, including provisional figures for 1993–94. The percentage increases of rents expressed at 1988–89 prices for each year from 1989–90 are also given.
The information for London boroughs could be provided for the years before 1988–89 only at disproportionate cost.
