HC Deb 23 July 1912 vol 41 cc972-3

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the number of representations made by rating authorities in Scotland in favour of the passing this Session of the Land Values (Scotland) Bill, introduced by the hon. Member for the Trades-ton Division of Glasgow, and to the fact that that measure is based on the Bill of the same name which was introduced by the Government in 1907 and 1908 and passed through all its stages in this House in each of these years; and whether he can give facilities for it in this House during the present Session?

The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood, for the Prime Minister)

I understand that a considerable number of representations have been received from rating authorities in favour of the Bill. I fear it is not possible to give facilities for its discussion before the Adjournment, but I will consider whether they can be given at a later date.
