HC Deb 30 October 1956 vol 558 cc1224-5
6. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what further consideration has been given to the ending of industrial derating ; and what action has been decided upon to remedy this situation.

Mr. Sandys

This problem is being examined, as part of the comprehensive review of local government finance which is being undertaken.

Mr. Dodds

Can the Minister be a little more specific and say whether there is any likelihood of the present unsatisfactory conditions continuing for a very long period?

Mr. Sandys

I do not think that it would be a good thing for us to announce piecemeal our conclusions upon various parts of this very comprehensive review.
