HC Deb 24 July 1890 vol 347 c721
MR. ROWNTREE (Scarborough)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer in what way it is proposed that the non-county boroughs, and especially the Court of Record boroughs, shall receive any share in aid of their local taxation under the Local Taxation (Customs and Excise) Bill, as proposed to be amended, beyond any sums allotted for police superannuation?


The non-county boroughs, inclusive of the Quarter Sessions boroughs, will receive a share of the money in question. The sum received by the county will either be devoted to the payment of charges to which the whole county, including the boroughs within the county, contribute rateably or be credited to the boroughs in common with other local areas in proportion to their rateable value.

MR. STOREY (Sunderland)

What will be done with the money in those counties where there is no rate, as is the case in several counties at the present time?


The money will then be distributed amongst all local areas in their counties.
