HC Deb 24 July 1894 vol 27 c806
MR. HUMPHREYS-OWEN (Cornwall, Launceston)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can hold out any hope that an inquiry as to the real incidence of local taxation, and how that taxation should be borne by the two descriptions of property, realty and personalty, may be held during the Recess, with a view to legislation on the subject next Session?


I am afraid I cannot say any such inquiry will be undertaken in—I was going to call it the present Recess—but, at any rate, in the Recess which I hope we shall have at an early date.
