§ MR. ANSTRUTHER (St. Andrew's, &c.)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the horses of officers of 1805 Auxiliary Cavalry ridden during permanent duty will be exempt from taxation to the same extent as those of officers of the Regular Cavalry?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
An officer of Auxiliary Cavalry required to use his horse on duty shall, on proof to that effect, be repaid the duty on the licence taken out for the horse so used. Officers of the Regular Cavalry will not be required to take out licences in respect of any horses which the Regulations of the Service require them to keep.
§ MR. JOICEY (Durham, Chester-le-Street)
asked, if horses used by Volunteer officers would be exempted?
§ MR. GOSCHEN
said, there would be no exemption; but a repayment would be made at the end of the year in respect of horses thus employed.
MR. MACDONALD CAMERON (Wick, &c.)
asked whether, seeing that a hawker's licence was reduced from £4 to £2, hawkers would also have to pay the Horse Tax?
