HL Deb 18 April 1990 vol 518 c99WA
The Earl of Kimberley

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What the estimated rate increase would have been if the community charge had not been introduced, given that the rates have not been revalued for 27 years.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of the Environment (Lord Hesketh)

I estimate that the average increase in domestic rates in England, had that replaced the community charge, would have been 30 per cent.
