HC Deb 07 July 1909 vol 7 cc1194-5

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if his attention had been drawn to the fact that the taxation of ungotten minerals might force into the market shallow deposits which had been retained in order to preserve antiquities and monuments on the surface, such, for instance, as portions of the Roman Wall, Northumberland; and whether, in such cases, it would be feasible to remit the tax?


My right hon. Friend will consider the point raised by the Noble Lord.
