§ 65. Miss WILKINSON
asked the Minister of Health whether he will make inquiry into the case of the Tees Valley Water Board; and, in view of the assistance to industry provided by this board and of the fact that 70 per cent. of its product is used for industrial purposes, he will reconsider his present decision to exclude this undertaking from derating?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
The question of including public supply undertakings in the hereditaments to which the Rating and Valuation (Apportionment) Act applies was considered when the Bill for that Act was before Parliament, and the Government are not prepared to ask Parliament to reconsider the decision on that question.
