Non-domestic Rates: Garages and Petrol Stations

Volume 504: debated on Thursday 28 January 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will meet representatives of the petrol retail industry to discuss the 2010 rating revaluation. (312724)

[holding answer 25 January 2010]: Treasury and Communities and Local Government Ministers have corresponded with petrol stations' representatives over the 2010 business rates revaluation. Officials in the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) are continuing to meet with the industry to discuss the detail of the scheme used to value petrol forecourts. I do not therefore intend to pursue a meeting at this stage, but remain open to doing so in the future.
