Questions and Answers on LVT: a need to update them

October 16, 2013 7:43 PM
By Tony Vickers in Henry George Foundation

In 1999, when Chief Executive of the Henry George Foundation, I wrote a fairly lengthy 'Q&A' on LVT, as a spin-off from a research project that I had been funded to do: looking at how LVT might be introduced in the UK. This project had involved surveys of 'stakeholders' in property taxation, in which many questions had been raised. Questions Around The Smart Tax was designed to put together all the answers which I had been giving to these stakeholders (and others) and engender discussion. It also included the results of the surveys.

Questions Around never found a publisher and I have lost the original electronic copy. However a colleague (ALTER member Ed Randall) kindly scanned my author's hard-copy and agreed with me that the work remained of some value. We would like to have it updated, revised, shortened and published in a structured way, as an online resource.

I have uploaded the scanned PDF to this site and ask anyone who has the time to read it, post comments to me at tony@libdemsalter.org.uk on both content and structure. Assistance with the online production would be much appreciated, also ideas for wider dissemination.
