§ 25. Mr. E. Taylor
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will now take steps to discontinue the rating privileges given to agriculture by the Local Government Act, 1929, in view of the fact that the parallel privileges given to industry by the same Act will soon be removed.
§ Mr. Rippon
Apart from any question of the merits, it would be quite impossible to do anything before 1968, because of the lack of any evidence of existing values in respect of agricultural properties.
