HC Deb 02 July 1861 vol 164 cc198-9

said, he wished to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Upon what grounds he has declined to recommend to the Lords Commissioners of the Treasury the payment of Rates assessed on Government property in the parish of St. Nicholas, Harwich, similar payment having been granted to other parishes in which Government property is situated?


stated, that the grounds upon which he recommended that the payment should not be made in the parish in question were that the proportion of the Government property, compared to the rest of the rateable property of the parish, did not appear to him to bring them within the rule which the Treasury applied to those cases.
