§ Mr. Harvey
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will review non-domestic rating regulations to ensure the same treatment for self-catering holiday units as for bed-and-breakfast accommodation.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
No. Bed-and-breakfast accommodation is not rated if the person who lives in the premises intends to make the accommodation available to six people or fewer and such use is subsidiary to the use of the property as his home. It would not be appropriate to apply such a test to self-catering holiday units.
