Business rates

An article (Big chains should repay £1.9bn business rates relief, says MP, 16 November, page 12) said that the government introduced a 12-month exemption from business rates across England and Wales in March. That meant to refer only to England; the government in Westminster does not have the power to set business rates in Wales.
