§ Mr. Bradford
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will give the number of homes in West Belfast which have received improvement or renovation grants and have not subsequently received notification of an increase in national annual valuation and rating charge.
§ Mr. Rossi
Local authority building regulations offices inform the rating division of the Northern Ireland Department of Finance of grant aided improvements approved by them and property valuations384W are revised accordingly. Since 1976 over 800 such cases in West Belfast have been notified to the Department of Finance, but more precise information would require a check of each case at disproportionate cost.
