HC Deb 24 June 1966 vol 730 cc165-6W
Mr. Robert Davies

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will take steps to remedy the anomaly whereby pensioners and others providing lodgings for university students during term, and with an income from all sources of under £8 a week, at present receive rate rebates which are only a fraction of those to which they would be entitled under the Rating Act, 1966, if they enjoyed a considerably higher income from other sources without letting rooms to students.

Mr. MacColl

No. Any alternative would bring about other difficulties.
