§ Mr. OLIVER
asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the resolutions sent to him from the urban district councils of Heanor and Ripley, in the county of Derby, with respect to reform in the basis of local rating; and whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce legislation at an early date on the lines therein suggested?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
The resolutions to which the hon. Member refers have been received. It is not intended to introduce legislation to give effect to the suggestions which they contain for the rating of land values.
