asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) whether he will initiate a number of pilot surveys to judge the effect of his proposed local tax in different parts of the country;(2) how the new local tax is to be collected;(3) what effect his new local tax will have upon the amount contributed to local expenditure by industry and commerce;(4) what estimates he has made of the yield of a local tax of the kind he is proposing; and upon what assumptions those estimates were based;(5) whether local authorities will have jurisdiction to fix the rate of the new local tax he is proposing.

I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to her question on 14th December.
