Statute Law Revision: Rating repeal proposals – Law Commission

Posted June 27th, 2007 in consultations, legislation, rates, statute law revision by sally

“The thirty Acts proposed for repeal in this consultation date mostly from the 18th and 19th centuries and concern local taxation in England at that time. The early rating system was closely linked with the system of providing relief for the poor in each parish. Indeed the English poor-law system remained parish-based until 1930. Changes in the mid-20th century, including the establishment of the welfare state, have made these Acts obsolete.”
