§ Mr. Heddle
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has any plans (i) to review or (ii) to seek to amend section 25 of the General Rate Act 1967.263W
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
Section 25 was amended in the Rates Act 1984 to make it easier for rating authorities to give relief to parts of properties which are temporarily unoccupied. There are no plans at present for any future changes.
