HC Deb 05 December 1979 vol 975 c253W
Mr. Arnold

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is satisfied with the take-up level of rate rebates.

Mr. King

In 1978–79 about 70 per cent. of those eligible claimed a rate rebate, which is clearly not yet a satisfactory level. I am considering ways in which the take-up might be improved.
