Clause 16. — (Postponement of Revaluation.)

Part of Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 20th October 1966.

Alert me about debates like this

Leader of the House, the previous Minister of Housing and Local Government, personally disliked the rating system. I believe, therefore, that within the Bill the right hon.

I am a believer in the rating system, properly worked, and that is what we should like to see.
