HC Deb 30 January 1913 vol 47 c1506
76. Mr. CATOR

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he will issue fresh regulations stating whether for rating purposes osier lands should be treated as agricultural land, or whether they should be assessed as buildings and other hereditaments?


The matter is governed by the definition of "agricultural land" in the Agricultural Rates Act, 1896, and I am not empowered to issue regulations of the kind suggested by the hon. Member.
