§ Dr. Cunningham
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he proposes to(a) announce the special provisions for non-domestic rating from 1990 onwards, following his consultation paper on the effects of revaluation of non-domestic property, and (b) inform individual non-domestic ratepayers of the new rateable values of their properties from 1 April 1990 following the revaluation of non-domestic property; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Ridley
[holding answer 21 June 1989]: I shall announce the Government's final proposals for phasing in the effect of the uniform business rate and the non-domestic revaluation as soon as we have completed our consideration of the responses to the consultation paper.
The Valuation Office will deposit with charging authorities draft lists showing new rateable values by 31 December 1989.
