HC Deb 25 June 1986 vol 100 c230W
58. Mr. Hirst

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received in relation to the Government's proposals to reform the business rating system; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Rumbold

My right hon. Friend and I continue to receive many representations on this aspect of our proposals, in particular from the business community and local authorities. It is too early to draw any conclusions from the views expressed.
