§ 37. Mr. JOHN WARD
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, having regard to the undertaking of the Unionist Government that the bonus of £18,000,000, provided for landlords selling estates in Ireland should be an Imperial and not an Irish charge, whether he will consider the propriety of imposing in the next Budget a special charge upon that interest, seeing landlords are the only persons to derive financial benefit from the undertaking?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
I am afraid I can at present make no statement in regard to my Budget proposals for the coming year.
