§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will seek to amend the Rating Act, 1966, Section 5, paragraph 7, so as to allow relatives who are in joint ownership to be treated on the same basis as a married couple for rate rebate purposes.
§ Mr. MacColl
No, because my right hon. Friend thinks any such approach, while remedying some anomalies, would be likely to cause others.
