HC Deb 23 May 1985 vol 79 c530W
Q22. Mr. Latham

asked the Prime Minister if she will make a statement on the recent representations she has received on the reform of the rating system.

The Prime Minister

I am well aware of the objections which many people have to the present rating system. Alternative forms of local taxation are among the issues being considered by the Government's studies on local government finance now in progress.
