HC Deb 05 March 1946 vol 420 cc59-60W
133. Mr. Warbey

asked the Minister of Health when it is proposed to introduce legislation to amend the Rating and Valuation (Apportionment) Act, 1928, with a view to ensuring that industrial undertakings shall make a reasonable contribution towards local rates

Mr. Key
