§ Mr. Bishop
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what were the average rents payable for the areas of the Newark Borough Council, Newark Rural District Council and Southwell Rural District Council before the Housing Finance Act became operative; what are the comparable figures since the implementation of the Act, with and without taking rebates into account; and how many tenancies are concerned in each category.
§ Mr. Channon
The average rents for these authorities at 1st April 1972 are shown in Housing Statistics 1971–72 Part I, published by the Institute of Municipal Treasurers and Accountants. A copy is available in the Library. Figures for April 1973 have not yet been published, so the information should be sought from the authorities themselves.
