§ MR. BUCHANAN
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the amount of residue to be given to the County and Town Councils in Scotland under his Amendments to Clause 2 of the Local Taxation (Customs and Excise Duties) Bill, and what sums will be given to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, and Aberdeen under his proposal?
§ * MR. J. P. B. ROBERTSON
Perhaps the hon. Member will allow me to answer the question. The amount to be given to the County and Town Councils in Scotland under the Amendments referred to in the question will be about £49,000. The proportions payable to the four towns named will probably be respectively: Edinburgh about £4,600; Glasgow about £7,200; Dundee about £1,400; Aberdeen about £1,100.
