§ 18. Mr. Sparks
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will now make a further statement regarding the policy of the Government on the derating of agriculture and industry.
§ Mr. Sandys
I have received numerous representations, both for and against the abolition of industrial derating, from hon. Members of this House; from local authorities; from organisations representing industry and commerce from trades unions, ratepayers associations and a large number of individuals. I have no further statement to make at present on this subject.
