Deputy John Deasy asked the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government if he will maintain the commercial rate levels in town councils to be abolished where the rate levels are lower in those town council areas than the commercial rate levels in contiguous local authority areas where the commercial rates are at higher levels, and where both local authority areas are to be amalgamated.
Deputy Deasy also asked the Minister if he has detailed the commercial rate levels in all town councils compared with contiguous local authority rate levels in those constituencies to be amalgamated and if he will publish those figures.
