asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the average net weekly rent of those local authority tenants who are in receipt of rent rebates, after rent rebates have been deducted, in the public sector of housing in England; and what this figure represents as a percentage of average household income in this category for the years 1970 to 1976.

The average rebated rent of local authority tenants not receiving supplementary benefit but receiving rebates in England and Wales in the years 1974 and 1975 combined, was £1·72, or 6 per cent. of head of household's and spouse's joint gross income. I regret that the other details requested are not available.
