§ MR. D. LLOYD-GEORGE (Carnarvon Boroughs)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that the Central Associated Chambers of Agriculture, at a meeting recently summoned to consider the Agricultural Land Rating Bill, decided that, in their opinion, provision should be made in the Bill for dividing the rates between owner and occupier; and whether he proposes in Committee on the Bill to accept Amendments moved with a view to effecting such a division?
§ MR. CHAPLIN
I have seen a report of the meeting referred to, and I observe that at the close of the proceedings a rider was added to the resolution of the Chamber to the effect stated in Question. I shall state my views upon the subject if the question arises during the progress of the Bill, but I have nothing to add in reply to the lion. Member to what I have already said on the subject.
