HC Deb 24 April 1907 vol 173 cc135-6

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Resolved, That it is expedient that the following grants to Local Taxation Accounts, namely—

  1. (1)The Estate Duty grants paid under Section 19 of the Finance Act, 1894; and
  2. (2)The Agricultural Rates grant paid under Section 2 of the Agricultural Rates Act, 1896; and
  3. 136
  4. (3)The Scottish Agricultural Rates grant paid under Section 3 of the Agricultural Rates, Congested Districts, and Burgh Land Tax Relief (Scotland) Act, 1896,
instead of being paid out of the revenues out of which they are payable under the present law, be charged on and paid out of the Consolidated Fund, but in the case of the grants which are payable during the continuance of any temporary Act, only so long as that Act is continued, and that where under the present law the proceeds of any duties are paid to any local taxation account, a sum equal to the proceeds of these duties at their present rates be paid to that account out of the Consolidated Fund, and the actual proceeds of the duties be paid into the Exchequer.—(Mr. Runciman.)

Resolution to be reported To-morrow.
