HC Deb 28 January 1976 vol 904 c200W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list in the Official Report from international sources of information available to him all those countries which raise national or local revenue by taxation upon land values.

Mr. Oakes

No comprehensive information is available, but wide-ranging surveys on urban land policies and land use control measures published by the United Nations in 1973 showed that some form of taxation of land values was in force in most of the developed countries covered by the surveys.
