asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many council tenants in Wales received rent rebates in 1980–81; and what were the average sums involved.

On the basis of returns made by local authorities to the Welsh Office it is estimated that about 133,000 council tenants in Wales received rent rebates, either directly from their local authority or indirectly by way of supplementary benefit from the Department of Health and Social Security, in 1980–81. The average rebate for that year is estimated to have been £4·42 per week.
