HC Deb 08 May 1907 vol 174 c240

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, in view of the recent judicial comments on the facilities for fraud afforded by the zones in the Land Act of 1903, and the inclusion of extraneous debts, real and fictitious, with the price of land for the purpose of obtaining public money, whether the Treasury will require a record to be kept of all additions to real price, so far as the zone system allows the detection of those additions, and does not empower the Commissioners or any Court to prevent them.


No, Sir; this is not a matter for the Treasury.
