HC Deb 28 February 1929 vol 225 c2199W
Lieut.-Colonel GADIE

asked the Minister of Health if any provision has been made in the Local Government Bill, or in any other way, to pass on the benefits of de-rating to the actual producer where he is under lease for premises with what is commonly called room and power; and whether, although the landlord may be protected in such lease against an excessive advance in the price of coal and the advance of rates above a given figure, the tenant will be freed to the amount of relief given by the Bill?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to Clause 66 of the Local Government Bill, which is designed to secure that the benefit of rate relief enures to the tenant in such cases.
