HC Deb 20 July 1875 vol 225 c1764

rose to call the attention of the House to the Local and Imperial Taxation of the Country; and to move— That Local and Imperial Taxation, where their incidence is concurrent, should have a common basis of valuation and should be alike assessed upon the net rental or annual value of real property, and that Imperial Taxation, when levied upon industrial earnings should be subject to such an abatement as may equitably adjust the burthen thrown upon intelligence and skill as compared with property,


Notice taken, that 40 Members were not present; House counted, and 40 Members not being present,

House adjourned at a quarter after Nine o'clock.
