§ 33. Mr. EVERARD
asked the Minister of Health the estimated amount of rates levied in England and Wales on agricultural buildings, excluding farmhouses, for the last three years, respectively?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
The amount of rates levied in England and Wales on agricultural buildings, excluding farmhouses, is not shown separately in the rate books nor can it be shown separately until the new valuation lists under the Rating and Valuation Act, 1925, have been compiled. In these circumstances a close estimate of the amount cannot be furnished for any year, but such indications as there are point to an amount ranging in recent years from £650,000 to £850,000.
