§ 22. Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how much rateable value will increase in each region in Scotland, and if he will take steps to introduce transitional measures to spread the burden of the increases.
§ Mr. Millan
Estimated average increases in rateable value by region and district were given in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Pollok (Mr. White) on 18th November 1977—[Vol. 939, c.425–48.] As I explained in the debate on the Rate Support Grant Order on 15th December 1977—[Vol. 941, c. 1002–05]—I have 257W decided, in agreement with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities, not to introduce transitional arrangements for the revaluation.
