§ Mr. BENNETT
asked the Minister of Health whether he proposes, before the introduction of his Bill on rating and valuation, to state the policy of the Government with regard to the rating of machinery?
§ Sir K. WOOD
My right hon. Friend is in consultation with the interests concerned and the local authorities with reference to the Report of the Departmental Committee, but he cannot undertake to make any statement before the introduction of the Rating and Valuation Bill.
