This chapter discusses the incomes and rents of the tenants living in Becontree Estate. This became an increasing concern ever since papers were published in Poverty and Public Health and the Royal Society of Medicine. These showed that the working-class tenants usually lessened their food expenses to meet their increased rents. This chapter attempts to determine how these tenants managed to get by while living in Becontree Estate.

Keywords:   incomes, rents, tenants, Becontree Estate, food expenses
