§ 60. Mr. OUTHWAITE
asked the right hon. Gentleman if his attention has been called to the fact that, in the Rural Cottages Bill introduced by the hon. Member for Hampstead, it is proposed that cottages built under its provisions shall be free of rates and taxes; and if he will apply this principle to existing buildings when promoting any measure of rating reform?
My right hon. Friend's attention has been called to the provisions of the Rural Cottages Bill referred to. He is not prepared to make any statement at the present time as to the principles which will be adopted in any measure of rating reform promoted by the Government.
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD
Can my hon. Friend say whether there is a chance of this House having an opportunity of debating this question of the Rural Cottages Bill?
