§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, as representing the Secretary for Scotland, whether the executive committee of the Association of County Councils have asked the Secretary for Scotland to bring under the notice of the Royal Commission on Local Taxation a letter from the Railways and Canals (Scotland) Assessor's Office, dated 25th March, 1901, relative to the Highland Railway valuation; and will he state what action has or will be taken in the matter.
*MR. A. GRAHAM MURRAY
The answer to the first part of the hon. Member's question is in the affirmative, and the whole subject of railway valuation in Scotland, including the points referred to in the letter of the Assessor of Railways and Canals in Scotland is engaging the attention of the Royal Commission on Local Taxation, of which the Secretary for Scotland is the chairman.
