HC Deb 06 July 1965 vol 715 c191W
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.
