Labour has said it will "cut and then freeze" business rates for 1.5 million small business properties if it wins the next General Election.
Shabana Mahmood, shadow exchequer secretary to the Treasury, said: "Labour's better plan goes much further than anything David Cameron and George Osborne are offering.
"And unlike the Tories, we won't short-change areas which choose not to have an elected mayor by giving them a second-class deal. Every part of England will benefit from Labour's better plan, not just a few."
Mahmood's comments follow the Chief Secretary to the Treasury's announcement of a "radical" review of English business rates.
