HC Deb 24 June 1974 vol 875 c350W
Mr. Awdry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will introduce legislation to grant 50 per cent. alleviation of sewerage charges imposed on parsonage houses.

Mr. Denis Howell

Parsonage houses do not receive relief in respect of direct charges levied by other public undertakings and the Water Act 1973 removed this service from the field of local government and eligibility for rate relief.
