§ SIR FREDERICK DIXON-HARTLAND
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will introduce a Bill to exempt drill halls belonging to the Volunteer Force from the payment of all Imperial, local, and other rates and taxes, or whether he will give facilities for any Bill brought in by a private Member to effect this object?
§ *MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
This is a question which I have not yet considered. The Treasury and the Local Government Board would have to be consulted; and I see no chance of legislation, even if it were found desirable, during this Session.
§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
I do not think that will give sufficient time. I can only repeat I think there is no chance of legislation on the subject this year.
