New Clause 9 — Regulations about powers to require information, offences and penalties
Local Government Finance Bill
John Leech (Manchester, Withington, Liberal Democrat)
I thank the Minister for addressing our new clause. Does he accept that there is a real problem with second homes in some parts of the country? If that problem does not decrease as a result of the changes, will the Government look again at measures to ensure that such areas are protected from a massive increase in the number of second homes?
