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.

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...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Sue Hayman: ...cuts to vital public services that the authority is being forced into, and we know that that is because funding from central Government has been slashed. Expecting a county such as Cumbria to get its funding from business rates is simply not realistic, as we do not have the necessary level of business or population. It is really important that rural communities have proper funding and that...
