HC Deb 30 October 1985 vol 84 c535W
Mr. Heddle

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what information he has as to the amount of rateable income derived by local authorities on a year-by-year basis from the date of inception of the rating of thoroughbred breeding establishments.

Mrs. Rumbold

The information is not held centrally. However, the total rateable value of horse breeding establishments assessed by valuation officers was of the order of £600,000 at March 1985. Applying the average general rate poundage for shire areas in England in 1984–85 of £1–69 in the pound suggests a potential rate income from these establishments of about £1 million for that year.
