HC Deb 12 March 1963 vol 673 c134W
65. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that the Leeds City Waterworks undertaking has increased in valuation by 83 per cent., and that the apportionment of the increase is 16 per cent. on the property in the Wharfedale Rural District Council area, whilst it is 235 per cent. in the City of Leeds; and if he will state upon what principles and formula; such apportionment is made.

Mr. Barber

The increases are 83.7 per cent., 15.0 per cent. and 190.3 per cent. respectively. On the second part of his Question I would refer my hon. Friend to the Answers given to him on 5th and 12th February and to the letter I sent to him on 20th February.
