§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
We have decided to confirm the proposals which were set out in the answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Vale of Glamorgan (Mr. Sweeney) on 28 November 1995,Official Report, column 600. These included an average guideline rent increase of 92p per dwelling per week and per dwelling management and maintenance allowance to be kept at broadly the same as in 1995–96. The other proposals, including one to limit rent rebate subsidy, are also confirmed with minor adjustments.
Tables setting out each authority's rent guideline and management and maintenance allowance for 1996–97 have been placed in the Library of the House.
