HC Deb 01 May 1936 vol 311 cc1233-4W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that certain appeals lodged in 1933 against the draft valuation list of rateable property in Manchester have not yet been dealt with; and whether he will take steps to expedite the hearing of the same?


I was not previously aware that such appeals were still outstanding. I understand that a large proportion of them relate to properties in the Wythenshawe area, which was only recently incorporated in the City and has not previously been valued by the Corporation. Meetings of the Assessment Committee for the hearing of the appeals in respect of this area have already been arranged; and as regards the others, steps will be taken to expedite the determination.
