asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will publish in the Official Report a table showing, district by district, at the latest convenient date, the number of householders in arrears, and the total sums outstanding in arrears, in respect of public housing rents and rates, respectively.
Information about arrears of public housing rents is not available in the form requested. Detailed information about the number of ratepayers in arrears, broken down district by district, will not be available before the accounts to 31st March 1975 are closed, and I will send this to the right hon. Member as soon as possible thereafter.
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether there has been any recent change in policy regarding arrears of rent and rates; and if he will make a statement.
