All-Island Rate

Government has been promising an all-Island Rate for ever!  Never been done, needs doing and houses in all areas need accurate and fair rating as so many charges are now rate based.  Why should someone in a massive house in the country pay the same or less than someone in a town, + their services will cost a lot more to provide.

Why the contribution is important

 

Equality and fairness.

Especially as the rates are the base for all household standing charges.

All prospective MHK's should have to include the rates issue in their manifestos and Tynwald should set a 2 year maximum term to sort it out.
