§ Mr. Iremonger
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he now has any further statement to make about the rating of plant and machinery.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
I am considering the important representations received. Some difficult issues arise on which I am not yet in a position to announce a decision. It is now clear, however, that it will not be practicable to provide that a new Order shall take effect from 1st April next as had originally been intended.
