asked the Minister of Health whether he will repeal the statutory provisions derating industrial hereditaments in view of the fact that the reasons for derating them, namely, unemployment and industrial depression, no longer exist?

I have nothing to add to the Answer which I gave to my hon. Friend on 23rd April, 1942.

What justification is there under present conditions for industrial hereditaments to be exempt?

Is not the only person who can give information on the point the Chancellor of the Exchequer, who made this ridiculous provision?

Does the right hon. Gentleman not know that most large authorities want this abolition?
