HC Deb 28 June 1974 vol 875 cc40-1W
Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the fact that premises are or are not connected to mains sewerage is taken into account when assessing gross rateable value.

Dr. Gilbert

In valuing properties for rating every intrinsic circumstance, including connection to mains sewerage, which tends to push the value up or down must be taken into consideration.
