HC Deb 04 March 1926 vol 192 c1606
57. Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health if he will, in view of the profiteering by tenants of houses, who sublet their rooms at extortionate rentals, suggest to local authorities that the assessments of such property be reviewed, in order that the rateable value of the property shall be increased so as to be in proportion to the amount of income received by the tenant?


I have no control over the proceedings of the assessment authorities, and do not think that I could properly adopt the course suggested in the question. If any person is aggrieved by the amount at which any property is assessed, it is open to him to object to the Assessment Committee.
