asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many persons have taken advantage of the introduction of the rent rebate scheme in Northern Ireland.
Up to 30th May 1975, 8,730 representing approximately 5 per cent. of Housing Executive tenants had applied for a rent rebate. 4,484 rebates have been granted; 1,553 applications have been refused and 2,693 are still being processed. This response is disappointing.
