HC Deb 01 April 1895 vol 32 c609

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, if any assessment made on account of payments towards the cost of the Suck Drainage can be appealed from, particularly as to the size of the area on which the assessment is made; and, if, in the case of small holders of land, the Board of Works will postpone levies during this year of distress?


The Acts under which the Board of Works make final Awards in cases like the Suck Arterial Drainage do not provide for appeal. No undue pressure will be used in collecting instalments from small holders of land.
