Answer for London's Property Taxes

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My officials have met with Treasury Ministers and officials, as well as those from other Government departments, to discuss the devolution of the full suite of property taxes to London government and to answer technical questions raised; they will continue to do so. The City Centred campaign, which represents London and the Core Cities, will continue to make the case to policy makers for city devolution.
