HC Deb 28 May 1886 vol 306 c312
MR. KIMBER (Wandsworth)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether, in any scheme of Local Self Government which may be in contemplation for England by Her Majesty's Ministers, it is proposed that the rating of lunatic asylums, and also of land and buildings belonging to or occupied by the Crown, should be made upon an equally full valuation with private property in the same locality or rating district?


I am not prepared to make any statement as to the scheme of Local Government contemplated by Her Majesty's Government; but I may say that I do not think it would be expedient to attempt to deal with questions as to the rating of particular classes of property in a Bill having for its primary object the constitution of Loyal Authorities and the determination of the areas within which they shall have jurisdiction.


asked whether the right hon. Gentleman had any intention of bringing in a rating Bill?


said, he did not expect to bring in such a Bill this Session.
