To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he can give the date for the transfer to county councils of powers to levy certain duties under the Finance Act, 1908, Section 6; and if he is unable to do so now, whether he will consider the desirability of doing so as soon as possible for the convenience of those engaged in the preliminary work necessary for carrying out the provisions of the Act.
