HC Deb 07 February 1973 vol 850 c106W
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.
