§ 39. Mr. Tom Boardman
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the form sent to occupiers of dwelling-houses requires them to make a return under the General Rate Act 1967 of night-storage heaters used on the premises, in view of the fact that such heaters are not taken into account in arriving at the rating assessment; and if he will have the form amended to make this fact clear.
§ Mr. Diamond
Because this is the simplest way of ascertaining whether the central heating is or is not a type which affects the value for rating.
