Volume 503: debated on Thursday 14 January 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his most recent estimate is of the net change in aggregate rateable values consequent on the new system of rating ports for the purpose of calculating business rates. (308595)

The net change of aggregate rateable values at 1 April 2005 is estimated to be an increase of £1.2 million
