HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 c302W
67. Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his estimate of the increase in the total of rates to be paid in Scotland in 1967–68 as compared with the previous year.

Mr. Ross

On the basis of information relating to 93 per cent. of Scottish rateable valuation, I estimate that the increase will be about £3.9 million or 2.7 per cent.
