§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what percentage of domestic properties have a rateable value of under £300 in each London borough; and what percentage of domestic properties have a rateable value of under £175 in each non-metropolitan county and metropolitan district in the rest of England and Wales.
§ Mr. Oakes
I regret that this information is not available but my hon. Friend may care to refer to the publication "Rates and Rateable Values in England and Wales 1973–74", a copy of which is in the Library. This shows the number of domestic properties in each rating 175W area in the valuation list on 1st April 1973 in the rateable value bands £1 to £150, £151 to £400 and over £400. Similar information in respect of 1974–75 will be published in due course.
