asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether any sum is contributed by the Admiralty towards the local rates at Greenwich in consideration of the occupation of Greenwich Hospital as a Naval College; and, if so, what is the amount of such contribution and upon what annual value is it based?
§ MR. T. BRASSEY
The Government contribute to the local rates of Greenwich for all Government property in the parish, upon a total rateable value of £9,220. Of this total the sum of £8,500 represents the rateable value of the Hospital and School. The Infirmary is valued separately, being leased to, and in the rateable occupation of, the Seamen's Hospital Society. Greenwich Hospital is not assessed separately from Greenwich Hospital School. The contribu- 1902 tion is paid by way of bounty out of the Vote for Bates on Government Property.
