HC Deb 24 May 1966 vol 729 c46W
45. Mr. Blaker

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware that war disability pensions are included in calculations of income for rate relief purposes; and whether he will take steps to alter this position.

Mr. MacColl

The Answer to the first part is "Yes"; and to the second part "No". My right hon. Friend explained at Report stage of the Rating Bill on 24th February the reasons for this.
