asked the Secretary of State for the Environment at what level of gross income a single person, a married couple, and a married man with two children, are able to obtain a rate rebate.
Whether a householder is eligible for a rate rebate depends not only on his gross income but on the rates payable, the gross income of his wife and the composition of the household. Therefore a given gross income cannot alone determine whether a rebate is payable.
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the maximum rateable value of domestic property above which rate rebates are not payable.
A rate rebate may not be granted on a property with a rateable value of more than£1,500 in the Greater London area and more than£750 elsewhere.
