Non-domestic Rates: Empty Property

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations his Department has received on the abolition of empty property tax relief for commercial premises in the last 12 months; and if he will make a statement. (258075)

Treasury Ministers and officials receive representations from a wide range of organisations and individuals in the public and private sectors as part of the process of policy development and delivery. As was the case with previous Administrations, it is not the Government's practice to provide details of such representations.
