§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he will consider the expediency of introducing legislation such as will impose penalties on owners of deer forests who fail to furnish the assessors with accurate information in regard to the area of forests, or on other points on which information is required for valuation purposes.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The deer forests are not valued in respect of their acreage. The Valuation Acts already provide under the exaction of penalties for the furnishing of such information as is necessary for the purposes of valuation. There is not, as I am advised, any necessity for legislation on the subject.
