MR. ALDERMAN LAWRENCE
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether, in view of increased taxation being necessary for the financial year 1885–6, he will consider the advisability of charging probate duty on freehold property in the same manner as it is now charged on leasehold property?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. CHILDERS),
in reply, said, he would take into consideration any suggestion made to him by his hon. Friend; but he could give the House no information as to the Budget until he introduced it.
