SIR UGHTRED KAY-SHUTTLEWORTH (Lancashire, Clitheroe)
asked the President of the Local Government Board, What is the total amount which it is estimated will be received in England and Wales, and in Lancashire (including the county boroughs), from the Van and Wheel Tax; and, whether statistics on this subject will be distributed to Members before the House is called upon to discuss in Committee the clauses of the Local Government Bill relating to main roads?
§ THE PRESIDENT (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)
The total amount which it is estimated will be raised in England and Wales from the Van and Wheel Tax is £168,000, and from the Horse Tax £540,000, or £700,000 in all. No accurate estimate can be given of the yield of the tax in Lancashire or any other county taken by itself.
