§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many Carlisle householders have been granted rate rebates in each year since the scheme became operative; what has been the average rebate in each of these years; and how these figures compare with individual rate relief allowed to Carlisle householders under the Rating (Interim Relief) Act which came into effect in the first half of 1964.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
The figures for rebates are as follows:
Year Number of recipients Average amount of rebate £ s. 1966–67 … … 1,939 12 10 1967–68 … … 1,623 13 3 1968–69 … … 1,557 12 17
No relief was granted to individual ratepayers under the Rating (Interim Relief) Act, 1964.
