HC Deb 27 February 1888 vol 322 c1494
MR. KIMBER (Wandsworth)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether it is the intention of the Government, in any Bill to be introduced this Session, to provide for the removal of the existing exemption of lunatic asylums from the ordinary assessment for rating purposes, which relieves the county at the expense of the particular parish in which the asylum is situate?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

The Government do not propose to bring in a Bill dealing with the assessment of rates on lunatic asylums; but an opportunity will arise for the hon. Gentleman to raise the question when the Lunacy Acts Amendment Bill is before the House.
