To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether her proposals to allow a supplementary business rate to be levied will apply to London; and whether local authorities will be able to charge the supplementary business rate on top of the Crossrail business rate levy.

We intend that the power to raise local business rate supplements should apply across England but that only the highest tier authority in any area should be entitled to levy them. This means that, in London, the power to levy supplements will rest with the Greater London Authority.
