HC Deb 09 December 1908 vol 198 cc459-60
MR. WALTER ROCH (Pembroke)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can obtain from the British Ambassador in the United States, or otherwise through the agency of the Foreign Office, a full Report showing the effect of the taxation of land values in New York City and Boston U.S.A., and how such valuation was carried out.


His Majesty's Consul-General in New York and Boston shall be instructed to furnish Reports containing such information as is available on the subject.

MR. WEDGWOOD (Newcastle-under-Lyme)

Will the hon. Gentleman consider the desirablity of getting Reports from San Francisco and other States not named in the Question where a separate valuation has been carried out?


I should like notice of that Question.
