§ 19. Mr. McInnes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if the committee appointed to review all aspects of local government finance, including industrial derating, has yet completed its deliberations; and if he intends publishing the Report.
§ Mr. J. N. Browne
No, Sir. I cannot at this stage add anything to what was said in the Most Gracious Speech.
§ Mr. McInnes
Does this Committee comprise the same personnel as considered the housing subsidies and rents? if so, I can assure the hon. Member that the Committee is quite capable of producing evidence suitable for the Government's policy.
