HC Deb 11 February 1913 vol 48 cc704-5

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will have Return prepared from the data secured in connection with land valuation to show by appropriate schedules how the land of Great Britain is held, as was done in the case of Lord Derby's Return?


I presume what my hon. Friend desires is a Landowners' Return such as was printed on page 15 of Lord Derby's Return (C. 1097 of 1875), showing for each county of England and Wales the number of owners below an acre, the number of owners of one acre and upwards, the total number of owners, and the extent of lands occupied by them. My right hon. Friend will consider whether such a Return could not be prepared as soon as the original valuation is completed.
