§ Mr. GREENWOOD
On the bases of (i) rates in the£ provisionally estimated for the standard year in order to give effect to the provisions of Section 100 of the Local Government Act, 1929, and (ii) unreduced and reduced rateable values as defined in the Act and provisionally ascertained, it is calculated that the occupiers of industrial and freight transport hereditaments in the Metropolitan Borough of St. Pancras have been relieved by the de-rating provisions of the Act of rates amounting to about£130,600 a year. According to the provisional calculations, the poundage of the rates payable by the general body of the ratepayers in the borough has been neither increased nor decreased by the operation of Parts I, V and VI of the Act.
