Rejected petition For a thorough review of business rates and the planned massive increases

Business rates are increasing dramatically - in many cases by hundreds of percent over the next five years. This is having a highly detrimental impact on the High Street, on pubs, on private clubs, etc. We call for an urgent review of the system and an immediate reversal of planned increases.
