§ Mr. Raffan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will estimate the level at which domestic rates in Wales would have to be fixed in 1990–91 in order to raise the same amount as under the community charge.
§ Mr. Nicholas Bennett
[pursuant to his reply, 5 December 1990, c. 148]: Owing to a typing error an incorrect figure was given. The correct answer is as follows. The estimated average rate bill per ratepayer for Wales in 1990–91 is £430 or 31 per cent. over 1989–90. For a detailed breakdown for each local authority, I refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to the hon. Member for Cardiff, North (Mr. Jones) on 11 May 1990.
