HC Deb 19 November 1968 vol 773 cc248-9W
Sir J. Eden

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government in view of the need to expand new hotel development and to increase the rate of modernisation of existing hotels, whether he will review the decision to include hotels in the charge for betterment levy under the Land Commission Act, 1967.

Mr. K. Robinson

No. An exemption for hotels would be a major departure from the principles of the Land Commission Act. Extensions of existing hotel premises up to 10 per cent. of the cubic capacity do not attract levy.
