§ Mr. John Fraser
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, since 1980, what has been the average percentage increase in rents being re-registered by rent officers and rent assessment panels under the Rent Act 1977 and the Housing Act 1980.
§ Sir George Young
The mean percentage changes on re-registrations by rent officers in the years 1980 to 1983 appear in table 1.11 of "Housing and Construction Statistics" issues 15 and 16 and in the statistical note for rent officers RO(S)62. All the currently available information about rent assessment committee decisions is in table 11.9 of "Housing and Construction Statistics 1972–1982". Copies of these sources are available in the Library.
