§ MR. BROADHURST
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he proposes to obtain power to prevent the evasion of the law relating to death duties in the case of estates of great values.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir M. HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
I think that, judging from receipts from death duties, anything that could properly be called evasion of the law is rare, but I have one point relating to this matter under consideration.
§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL
Has the right hon. Gentleman's attention been 799 directed to the estate of the late Duke of Westminster?
