§ Mr. Pilkington
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the increasing burden of rates, particularly on small property owners of very limited incomes, an investigation can be made with a view to fixing some limit beyond which local rates cannot be increased?
§ Mr. Elliot:
As my hon. Friend is aware, I am already arranging for an investigation into certain allegations of hardships in the present law of assessments. Beyond that I fear it is not possible for me to go.
