HC Deb 22 March 1907 vol 171 c1271

To ask the Secretary for Scotland whether, having regard to the complexity of the present system of rating in Scotland, whereby the county and parish councils levy their assessments upon gross and net rental respectively, he will introduce legislation to unify the method of assessment and collection.

(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) I am aware of the importance of the matter referred to by my hon. friend, but I am unable to give any undertaking as to the introduction of legislation on the subject.
