HC Deb 23 September 1909 vol 11 cc805-6

Motion made, and Question proposed, That there shall be charged on the Consolidated Fund in each year a sum equal to half the proceeds of the duties levied in respect of land values (including Mineral Eights Duties) under any Act of the present Session, and that sum shall be divided between England, Scotland, and Ireland in such a manner and paid into such separate accounts for the benefit of such local authorities as Parliament may determine."—[Mr. Lloyd-George.]

Mr. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN rose to discuss the Motion.


I do not propose to press this to-night if there is likely to be any discussion. There is another Resolution which I am afraid I must press, as we must get the Report stage early. That is absolutely essential. That Resolution has reference to a new Clause. I beg, therefore, to withdraw this Resolution.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
