Conference further notes that:

1. Introducing the CLL would give businesses a net tax cut.

2. Under the CLL, business taxes would be lower in 92% of local

authorities, helping to close Britain's regional divide and

alleviating the crisis on our high streets.

3. The majority of economic sectors would receive a boost under

the CLL, with lower bills in manufacturing, hospitality and shops

among other sectors.

4. Under the CLL, the 61% of small and medium sized businesses

that do not own their own premises would no longer directly pay

property tax, shifting the administrative burden of tax away from

businesses onto a smaller number of commercial landlords, and

saving both businesses and councils precious time and money.
