HC Deb 05 February 1965 vol 705 cc342-3W
Mr. Hobden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many proposals for reduction in the rateable assessment of house properties in Brighton were received between 1st April, 1963, and 1st April, 1964; and how many of these cases are still awaiting a hearing before the valuation panel.

Mr. MacDermot

4,516 proposals for properties of all kinds—separate figures for house properties are not available. About 2,100 of these cases are awaiting a hearing, but a number of them may of course be settled out of court.
