asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether, after the passing of the New Forest Highways Bill, the Crown will contribute towards the maintenance of the highways taken over under the Act by the highway authorities?


Yes, Sir; I can assure the hon. Gentleman that the Crown will make a contribution in lieu of highway rate, based on the same principles as the contributions now paid in lieu of other rates.
