Land Value Tax Bill by Caroline Lucas: debate rescheduled to 26 April

The Private Member’s Bill tabled by Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion was due to have been debated on 1 March but for some reason was not. It is now scheduled for debate on Friday 26 April. The wording of the Bill is to “require the Secretary of State to commission a programme of research into the merits of replacing the Council Tax and Non-domestic rates in England with an annual levy on the unimproved value of all land, including transitional arrangements; to report to Parliament within 12 months of completion of the research; and for connected purposes.”
