To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 14 May 2008, Official Report, column 1627W, on taxation, whether (a) the 2005 business rates revaluation and (b) the most recent council tax revaluation in Wales were revenue neutral.

I have been asked to reply.

The 2005 business rates and 2005 council tax revaluation in Wales were revenue-neutral. The overall increase in receipts in the year of revaluation arose from councils' decisions to increase council tax rates, and were broadly in line with increases in the previous years.

Does this answer the above question?
