§ Mr. Arthur Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the evident disparities arising from rating revaluation, he will ensure that there shall be a limit to the rate increase by individual ratepayers; and if in addition he will grant powers to local authorities to make further adjustments in particular circumstances
§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
My right hon. and learned Friend has no power to limit rate levels or to enable local authorities to vary the rates to be levied on individual ratepayers.
