Bill calling for Land Tax Research gets boost

A Bill calling on Government to commission research on Land Value Taxation has received a boost from grants to enable opinion polling on attitudes to property taxes to be undertaken. The Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust has awarded £5,000 to the Coalition for Economic Justice (CEJ), of which PLRG is a member, to help pay for the opinion survey. Other CEJ members have matched this grant.

The Bill's promoter in Parliament, Green MP for Brighton Caroline Lucas, visited the Liberal Democrat Conference in her constituency last week to discuss how the survey results might help her. She met the Lib Dem Deputy Leader Simon Hughes MP, who had just spoken in a debate on housing, calling for "site value rating - or something like it - to ensure that speculating developers cannot control the flow of new homes on sites that have planning permission".

To help fund PLRG's analysis of the polling results by MORI, you can donate online here - the 'donate' PayPal button is at the bottom of the page.
