§ Mrs. Fenner
No. Between May 1979 and October 1981, rents which were paid by workers occupying Forestry Commission houses in the North-East England conservancy area rose by an average of 66 per cent. compared with the figure of 82 per cent. for Great Britain as a whole, which I gave in answer to a question from the hon. Member on 29 October 1981.—[Vol. 10, c.465.] When the latest rent increase, which became effective from 15 November 1981, is taken into account, the figures are 112 per cent. and 136 per cent. respectively.
