HC Deb 27 April 1896 vol 39 c1735
MR. THOMAS SHAW (Hawick Burghs)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate what is the estimate of the annual valuation and the acreage of the agricultural land in Scotland to which the relief proposed to be given by the forthcoming Agricultural Land Rating (Scotland) Bill will extend?


This Question seems to be based on the assumption that the proposals for the two countries will be identical; an assumption for which no warrant has been given. The information on which the proposals of the Government as to Scotland in regard to this subject are based will be given when the Bill is introduced.
