§ 39. Mr. Donald Coleman
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether, in view of the increases in rates in the spring of this year, he will now introduce legislation to relieve frontagers of financial liability towards the cost of making-up private streets; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. MacColl
No. My right hon. Friend does not think that such legislation would achieve its purpose. The effect of relieving frontagers from road charges would be to throw a still heavier burden on the rates.
