§ 22. Mr. Garrow
asked the Minister of Power if, in view of the fact that local assessors in various parts of the country are indicating that the installation of domestic off-peak block storage heaters will bring about increased rateable values, he will give a general direction to area electricity boards to refrain from suggesting in their advertisements that the installation of these heaters will not result in increased rateable values.
§ Mr. John Morris
I understand that in England and Wales the installation of free-standing storage heaters does not affect rateable values. The Scottish Electricity Boards are the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State.
