HC Deb 08 March 1978 vol 945 c680W
Mr. Cant

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will seek to make it mandatory on valuation officers to notify local authority treasurers in writing when they have made an error in hereditament assessments, so that adjustments in liabilities can be made without delay, and a ratepayer treated in a right and fair manner.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

Valuation officers are already required by law to notify the appropriate rating authority of all amendments to the valuation list, whatever the cause.
