Rating (Valuation) Bill — 24 Feb 1999

Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (No).

Order for Third Reading read.--[Queen's consent, on behalf of the Crown, signified.]

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

It became clear in Committee that the professional bodies representing the valuation profession, and Opposition Members, feared that the Bill went rather further than the Government had suggested. We have said that our intention in introducing the Bill was to restore the position on rating valuations to the one which existed before the Lands Tribunal decision in Benjamin v. Anston Properties.

Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:--

The House divided: Ayes 165, Noes 140.
