HC Deb 24 April 1980 vol 983 c247W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects the first supplementary rate demand to be issued by a local authority in 1980–81; and if he expects a substantial number of local authorities to issue such demands.

Mr. King

Decisions about whether or not to levy supplementary rates rest entirely with individual local authorities. The Department has no information as to whether there will be any supplementary rate demands.
