Memorandum submitted by Banbridge District
The Council has recently been considering the
proposal to introduce an Aggregates Tax in Northern Ireland.
There are several large quarry operators in
business in this district and there would be very serious concerns
over the effect that such a tax would have on their operation,
particularly in view of our proximity to the border with the Republic
A letter has been sent to the Chancellor of
the Exchequer on the matter and the Council would be grateful
if its views could be made known when the Northern Ireland Affairs
Committee considers the matter at its meeting.
