Rates appeal

PROTESTING ratepayers in the London Borough of Waltham Forest will have to wait to learn whether they have won the High Court battle to quash a 62 per cent rate rise, which they have condemned as "irrational". Lord Justice Glidewell and Mr. Justice Schiemann have reserved judgment at the end of a six-day hearing in which the 15,000-strong Waltham Forest Ratepayers' Action Group accused the Labour-controlled Council of failing in its legal duty to consult industrial and commercial ratepayers before imposing the rate.
