HC Deb 03 August 1891 vol 356 cc1126-7
MR. CALDWELL (Glasgow, St. Rollox)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that Rating Authorities in Scotland require to prepare in August their estimates and to issue their assessment notices for the year 1891–2, and that, if consideration of the grant of £110,856 to these Rating Authorities be delayed till next Session, the grant, although received by Scotland before 31st March next, will be lost to those ratepayers who are ratepayers this year but who may not be ratepayers next year; and what remedy he would propose to meet such a case?


I am not aware of the facts stated in the question.
