HC Deb 14 July 1970 vol 803 c159W
46. Mr. Cormack

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will introduce legislation to alter the rating system so that owner-occupiers are no longer penalised for making internal improvements to their property.

Mr. Peter Walker

We will be considering the whole question of local government finance in the context of local government reform. In the meantime I have no present proposals for legislation on this subject.
