§ SIR GEORGE JENKINSON
asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether he intends to bring in any Bill this Session dealing with the subject of local taxation, and with the inequalities of the present system of levying the same, by extending such incidence to other property now exempt, or by any other remedy or alteration of the present mode?
§ MR. HIBBERT (for Mr. STANSFELD)
said, his right hon. Friend proposed to deal with the question of local taxation 1157 and existing exemptions from local rates, but would not deal with the inequalities of the present system of levying local taxation. His right hon. Friend hoped to introduce the Bill in the course of the present Session; but could not state when he would do so, or even whether he would be able to introduce a Bill at all.
