HC Deb 07 December 1944 vol 406 c754W
Mr. Hogg

asked the Minister of Health whether he can state the position of beekeepers and owners of bee gardens under the provisions of the de-rating law.

Mr. Willink

As my hon. Friend will appreciate, his Question involves the interpretation of the precise language used in Section 2 of the Rating and Valuation (Apportionment) Act, 1928. I do not find that the question has been before the courts, and I have no power to interpret the Section.
