HC Deb 01 December 1959 vol 614 cc116-7W
79. Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs, if he will renew the assurance that he gave to industry in 1957 that he would not, during the lifetime of that Government, make any further change in the percentage of industrial derating subsequently laid down in the Local Government Act, 1958.

Mr. H. Brooke

I assume that my hon. Friend refer to the statements made in 1957 that the Government proposals, later enacted in the Act of 1958, were limited to rerating to 50 per cent. I am not in a position to add to that.
