HC Deb 25 July 1967 vol 751 cc73-4W
4. Mr. Dobson

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware that the incorrect advice he has given to local authorities on the administration of the Rating Act, 1966, has caused Bristol Corporation to refuse payment of rebate to Mrs. E. H. K. Taylor, 4 Stapleton Close, Bristol; and if he will amend the advice to enable full rebate to be paid in such cases.

Mr. MacColl

No. While I appreciate my hon. Friend's concern for his constituent I do not think that the Bristol City Council was wrong in its decision or that the general advice given by the Department was misleading.
