To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if he will place in the Library a copy of the Rent Service report indicating that the number of localities would have increased from 400 to 4000 as a result of the Court of Appeal judgment on local reference rents in Stockport delivered on 26 October 2001, referred to in the First Standing Committee on Delegated Legislation,Official Report, 14 January, column 12.

We have not received a formal report from the Rent Service. The likely increase in the number of localities was a Rent Service estimate for England.
