Baroness Featherstone: I thank the noble Lord for that Answer, but I think the local community were expecting something a little sooner, from business rates, which would have come in the local government finance Bill, but that was not in the Queen’s Speech.

I have argued with the aviation Minister, the chief executive of Heathrow airport and others that a greater share of the business rates must rightly come to Slough.

Lord Shipley: ...a crucial, related issue: second homes that are substantially, although not completely, unoccupied.

Short-Term Holiday Lets - Question (19 Jun 2018)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, short-term holiday lets, including Airbnb, can now be classified as business premises. Under the small business rates relief scheme, if the rateable value is under £12,000 a small business pays neither business rates nor council tax—effectively it pays no tax—a system that can be abused. How many properties fall under this category and what is the cost to the public...

Parking Charges: Chippenham (13 Jun 2018)

Michelle Donelan: ...areas have introduced sensible parking systems, which speaks volumes—the evidence base is there. For example, Braintree introduced a parking charge of 10p after 3 pm, and 10p all day on Sunday.

Business Rates — [James Gray in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Rachael Maskell: My constituents will be very disappointed by the Minister’s response, because he did not respond to the specific questions I raised. We have a broken business rates system.

Members have...
