HC Deb 27 July 1896 vol 43 c692

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, whether the Land Tax Commissioners' Names Bill will be introduced again next Session; whether, in that case, the names which may have been handed in by Members this year at the Public Rill Office will be inserted in the schedule, or whether a fresh nomination will be necessary; and, whether the Measure will provide for the removal of the property qualification, by which the choice of suitable persons is at present restricted?


Yes, Sir, the Bill will be re-introduced next Session. The Gentlemen whose names have been handed in at the Public Bill Office will not necessarily have to be nominated afresh. As regards the last paragraph, my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer has already stated, in reply to a question put by the hon. Member for Flint Boroughs on the 23rd instant, that he is not, at any rate at present, in a position to propose any alteration in the law.
