Rates and Rating: Historic Buildings

Volume 506: debated on Wednesday 3 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many stately homes in England were on the Valuation Office Agency's Rating List in (a) 1997 and (b) 2010. (319222)

I have been asked to reply.

For the number of properties on the list in 1997, I refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the hon. Member for Meriden (Mrs. Spelman) on 5 January 2010, Official Report, column 232W.

For the number of property types on the list in 2010, I refer the hon. Member to the statistical release titled “Non-domestic rateable values: 2010 Local Ratings Lists - England and Wales” published on 18 December 2009. A copy of this statistical release is available at the following link:
