HC Deb 08 November 1976 vol 919 c5W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will amend paragraph 19(3)(b) of the Rate Rebate Regulations 1974, to provide that a ratepayer need apply for a rebate once only in the course of a single financial year.

Mr. Guy Barnett

No. The need for ratepayers not of pensionable age to apply for rebates at more frequent intervals than a year enables the rebate to be more closely matched to their current circumstances.
