HC Deb 30 July 1980 vol 989 cc729-30W
28. Sir David Price

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what discussions he intends to have with representatives of the local authorities about the replacement of the rating system by some broader based and more equitable system of local taxation.

Mr. King

We are still at a preliminary stage in our review, but we shall certainly want to consult the local authority associations and other interested bodies at the appropriate time.
