HC Deb 09 February 1973 vol 850 c211W
Mr. Dell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how the proportion of total rateable value constituted by domestic ratepayers has changed with each post-war revaluation.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

Final figures for this year are not yet available centrally, but on the basis of earlier estimates the domestic proportion of total rateable value will change from just over 48 per cent. to nearly 49 per cent. in 1956, the change was from 59.83 per cent. to 49.41 per cent., and in 1963 from 47 per cent. to 48.35 per cent.
