HC Deb 19 March 1986 vol 94 c238W
46. Mr. Chris Smith

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received about the impact on services provided by the local authorities in question in the rate limitation orders for 1986–87.

Mr. Waldegrave

A number of authorities drew my attention in their representations to the impact which they claimed rate capping would have on their services. Similar claims made about rate capping in 1985–86 did not in the event prove justified.
