HC Deb 15 July 1907 vol 178 c326

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if the promise that existing contracts will be rigidly respected as sacred will safeguard the case of the purchase of land which, although of a present low rental value, has been bought at a high price as prospective building land from the effects of any change in the system of valuation or rating.


This is a hypothetical question, the answer to which may be deferred until legislative proposals dealing with the matter come before Parliament.
