HC Deb 26 June 1930 vol 240 c1338

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider the desirability of suggesting to local authorities that they should place on the demand notes for rates not merely how the rate is made up but also the total loan indebtedness of the authorities?


The statutory provisions governing the form and content of rate demand notes are intended to secure an analysis of the rate by reference to the cost of individual services, and information as to the total loan indebtedness of a local authority would hardly come within the scope of those provisions.
