Rents: Wimbledon

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate she has made of the change in rental rates for (a) business and (b) council tenants in Wimbledon constituency arising from her Department's decisions on the rental increase formula for 2008-09. (256617)

No estimate has been made. Local authority rents are set by the councils themselves, not central Government. We do not estimate rent increases that might be made by individual councils.

The guideline rent formula used in the housing revenue account subsidy determination does not impact upon business rents.
