HC Deb 14 July 1890 vol 346 c1605
MR. ROWNTREE (Scarborough)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board if the new draft of Sub-section 3, Clause 1, of the Local Taxation (Customs and Excise) Duties Bill will be communicated to the House before the Bill is proceeded with?


Yes, Sir.


I beg to postpone until next week the question which stands in my name, to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether; having regard to the desirability of making provision, whenever opportunities occur, for public parks and recreation grounds in the midst of the crowded population of South London, he will consider the propriety of applying the unappropriated monies arising out of the new Spirit Tax to the acquisition, for the benefit of the public, of the Crystal Palace And its grounds, which, it I is believed, the present proprietors would offer to the nation for about £750,000?
