HC Deb 14 July 1992 vol 211 c634W
Mr. French

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he intends to review his policy of uniform business rate with respect to outdoor advertising companies;

(2) what representations he has received regarding the effect of the uniform business rate on outdoor advertising companies.

Mr. Robin Squire

I have received a number of representations on this subject since April 1990. Hoardings and other advertising stations constitute non-domestic property and will continue to be rateable, as they have been since the last century.
