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

I do not believe that any Chancellor of the Exchequer will be able to throw overboard a system of local taxation which at present brings in £1,200 million a year. Therefore, we should seek by all means in our power while the system exists to make it work satisfactorily. I am exceedingly disappointed by the Minister. We have offered him a degree of flexibility and I am amazed that he has turned it down. We believe that revaluation at regular intervals is essential and for that reason I ask my right hon. and hon. Friends to divide the House.
