IN his Budget speech, Sir Hamish Macleod revealed the completion of the property revaluation and suggested a rates cap of 20 per cent in increases in the next two years. He said the revaluation should not be interpreted as ''increases'' but only ''inflationary adjustment''.


If what Sir Hamish claims is correct, I understand why CMB and KMB have asked for a 19 per cent increase in fares. We should ask from our employers an increase of 20 per cent to reflect the ''cost of living adjustment''.
