§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will postpone work on the preparation of 1973 valuation lists pending the results of the Maud proposals and the Government inquiry as to the methods for financing those proposals.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
No. Unfairness arises from not having periodic revaluations. The one due in 1968 was omitted and if preparations for the 1973 revaluation were halted now, it would be necessary to postpone it, whatever the outcome of the Government's review of local government finance.
