§ 64. Mr. C. BATHURST
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the total amount of money now raised for public purposes by Imperial taxes and local taxation, respectively?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The total sum raised by Imperial taxes, including the duties which prior to 1907–8 were paid direct to the Local Taxation accounts was £155,040,000 in the year 1911–12. The total amount received by local authorities from rates in 1910–11 (the latest year for which particulars are available) was approximately £76,000,000. For the receipts of local authorities from sources other than rates, I can only refer the hon. Member to the Table on page 53 of the Statistical Abstract for the United Kingdom (Cd. 6399), which gives particulars for 1909–10 and previous years.
