HC Deb 03 August 1965 vol 717 c269W
43. Mr. Prior

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what is Her Majesty's Government's policy with regard to rating of agricultural buildings; and what instructions are going to the valuation officers on the method of assessment.

Mr. MacColl

The rating of agricultural buildings is being considered as part of the current examination of local government finance and the rating system. My right hon. Friend has nothing to say at present. As regards the second part of the Question, the issue of instructions to valuation officers is a matter for the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
