HC Deb 26 February 1908 vol 184 c1736

To ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he has received any request from the Corporation of Glasgow that he will receive a deputation to urge the desirability of placing upon the Imperial Exchequer the whole or part of the cost of the new method of valuation for Scottish counties and boroughs proposed in the Land Values (Scotland) Bill.

(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) A verbal request on Monday last for an immediate interview reached the Scottish Office while I was attending a meeting of the Cabinet on that day, and which I was unable to arrange for at such short notice.
