§ Mrs. Winifred Ewing
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what will be the percentage rise in the rates including water and sewerage and the parish or community council precept levied by local authorities in Scotland as a whole in 1975–76 as compared with the total poundage of rates levied for the same services in 1973–74; and how this compares with the average rate levied by English authorities.
