In a written answer to Rod Richards (Clwyd North West) today Welsh Office minister Gwilym Jones said the Welsh Ofice is consulting councils and other bodies on proposals for the rent guidelines and maangement and maintenance allowances to be used in calculating next year's entitlement to Housing Revenue Account Subsidy.
Mr Jones continued: 'I shall be placing a copy of the consultation papers in the Library of the House with a list of the estimated guidelines and allowances for each authority. The proposals are for an average guideline rent increase of £2.20 per week with a range of increases for individual authorities from £1.50 to £2.90 per week.
'The new average weekly guideline rent would be £31.30. For management and maintenance it is proposed to increase allowances by an average of £31 per annum per dwelling over the 1993-94 level.'
