HC Deb 19 May 1981 vol 5 c66W
Mr. Higgins

asked the Secretary of State for the environment whether he will take steps to ensure that any reduction in domestic rateable value reduces the liability of domestic rates and water charges from the same date and to rectify the anomaly produced by the introduction of the General Rate Act 1967 and the Water Act 1973.

Mr. King
