HC Deb 12 May 1964 vol 695 c34W
Mr. Shinwell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proposals he has in mind for the reduction in the burden of local rating.

Mr. Maudling

While some changes may be needed, the Government cannot judge precisely what these should be until it has considered the report of Professor Allen's Committee on the impact of rates and has completed its general review of central and local government financial relationships.
