Local Government Finance Bill — Clause 1 — Local Retention of Business Rates — 18 Jan 2012 at 15:15

Dominic Raab MP, Esher and Walton voted against delaying enabling local councils to keep money raised from business rates in their areas.

The majority of MPs voted against delaying enabling local councils to keep money raised from business rates in their areas.

The text of the rejected amendment was:

  • amendment 20, page 2, line 13, leave out ‘2013’ and insert ‘2014

This would have taken effect on clause 5(3) of the Local Government Finance Bill with the result of delaying the introduction of local retention of non-domestic rates by a year, until 2014.
