HC Deb 27 April 1871 vol 205 c1778

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether, in the Local Taxation Bill, it is intended that all moneys needed for works under jurisdiction of sewers are to be provided for out of the Consolidated Fund mentioned in the above-named Bill?


Sir, there will be cases in which it will be impossible to include in the consolidated rate moneys levied under the jurisdiction of sewers, those rates in many cases not being fixed with reference to any parochial or local boundary, but according to the levels. There are cases in which there are 17 different levels and 17 different rates. In such cases special provisions will have to be made.
