To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the Answer of 21 December 2017 to Question 120091 on non-domestic rates: Liverpool City Region, if his Department will expand the scope of the draft Non-Domestic Rating (Property in Common Occupation) Bill with additional clauses to enact those powers.

This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.

The Government is committed to ensuring that the Mayor of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has the appropriate powers to help promote local growth.

However, given the very specific purpose of the draft Non-Domestic Rating (Property in Common Occupation) Bill the Government does not consider that this is the appropriate vehicle.

The Department will continue to engage with the Mayor and the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority to work through this point.
