HC Deb 19 March 1986 vol 94 c232W
27. Mr. Dixon

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the latest estimate of the average increase in domestic rates for 1986–87.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave earlier today to the hon. Members for Wentworth (Mr. Hardy) and for Birmingham, Ladywood (Ms. Short).

Dr. Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish the average rate increase at ratepayer level, for authorities, county and districts, in each non-metropolitan county, metropolitan county and in the Greater London area in each year from 1975–76 to 1985–86, showing also the overall percentage change over this period.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

The figures have been published annually by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy in "Finance and General Statistics" (previously "Finance, General and Rating Statistics") since 1977–78.

Figures for 1975–76 and 1976–77 were published by DOE in "Rates and Rateable Values".

Copies of these publications are in the Library.
