§ 51. Mr. R. YOUNG
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the growing difficulty of local assessment committees to appoint representatives to the county valuation committees owing to their inability to repay out of their funds the reasonable expenses incurred by their representatives in attending meetings of the county valuation committees; and whether he will consider taking steps, either administratively or by amendment to the Rating and Valuation Act, 1925, to remove this disability?
I have received some letters on this subject. I would remind the hon. Member that a similar proposal was discussed but rejected when the Rating and Valuation Bill was under consideration, and I do not propose to ask the House to reconsider its decision to which administrative action must, of course, conform.
