§ MR. LAMBERT
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he 1090 can state when the Royal Commission on Local Taxation is expected to report; and whether that Report will be in the hands of Members before the Agricultural Rating Bill is renewed.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I understand that no date can yet be fixed, but every effort is being made to press on the Report. It is impossible to give the pledge asked for in the second paragraph.
