Mr. Gallie

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland which rating authorities in Scotland use their discretionary powers to reduce rates leviable on private sector nursery schools.

Mr. Stewart

Details of the policies of individual rating authorities with regard to their granting of discretionary rating relief are not held centrally. However, if a private sector nursery school has charitable status it will be eligible for mandatory rates relief of 80 per cent. in accordance with section 4 of the Local Government (Financial Provisions Etc.) (Scotland) Act 1962, as amended.
