To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) how many rooms have been let under the rent-a-room scheme; and how many of these rooms have come into letting since the scheme began;(2) if he will identify the cost of the rent-a-room scheme in its first year of operation; and what the anticipated cost is for 1993–94.

Information about the number of rooms let under the rent-a-room scheme can only be obtained from housing surveys. Information about the cost of the scheme can only be obtained from a special analysis of tax returns. Data are not available from either source yet.

There are no forecasts of the costs in either 1992–93 or 1993–94.
