§ Mr. Alton
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek to repeal section 21 of the Local Government Act 1974, in view of the decision to cancel the rating revaluation.
§ Mr. King
My right hon. Friend hopes to bring forward legislation in the near 611W future that will contain an enabling power for the Secretary of State to commission a revaluation of non-domestic property if that seems desirable at some stage in the future. We do not, however, have any immediate plans for such a revaluation.
