§ 13. Sir GEORGE YOUNGER
asked whether the register of annual licence value of houses of over £500 rental has been completed under the provisions of Section 44 of the Finance (1909–10) Act, 1910; what has been done in the cases of houses of £500 and under; and whether there is any immediate prospect of completing the register?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The register of annual licence value of houses of over £500 rental has been substantially completed. Beyond the issue of the form of return, no steps have been taken with regard to houses of an annual value of £500 and under. The method of arriving at the annual licence value of licensed houses is at the present time the subject of litigation, and there is, I regret, no immediate prospect of completing the register.
