HC Deb 25 February 1875 vol 222 c844

asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether it is necessary that the householders of the Metropolis should be called upon to answer questions so likely to cause difficulty and embarrassment as those which under "The Metropolis Valuation Act, 1869," are now put to them? The hon. Member said, he might add that a number of householders had stated that it was absolutely impossible for them to answer the questions which had been put to them.


, in reply, said, the questions which had been sent round were the same as those which had been sent every five years under the provisions of the Metropolis Valuation Act of 1869; there was nothing in them he thought of an objectionable character, and they contained nothing but what was necessary for the purposes of the Act.
