§ 25. Mr. ATKEY
asked the Minister of Health whether a Committee of the Cabinet has been appointed upon the question of the valuation and rating of public utility undertakings; whether evidence is being taken; and, if so, what means have been adopted to obtain representative evidence on behalf of water, gas, electricity, tramways and light railways, hospitals, sewage disposal works and other public utility undertakings?
§ Sir A. MOND
The valuation of public utility undertakings was, of course, included among the questions considered by the Cabinet Committee on Valuation and Rating Reform, but in view of the mass of evidence previously accumulated by the Royal Commission and the Departmental Committee there was no need to obtain further representative evidence on behalf of these undertakings.
