HC Deb 05 February 1965 vol 705 c342W
Sir J. Fletcher-Cooke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he will be in a position to make a statement about the Government's review of the rating system.

Mr. MacDermot

We have taken steps to intensify work on the review of local government finance. But it is a complex subject with long-term implications, and I cannot yet give a completion date.
