HC Deb 01 April 1914 vol 60 c1170
34. Mr. NEWMAN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has been afforded an opportunity of reading the final Report of the Departmental Committee on Local Taxation; and, if so, whether, in view of the inability of a majority of the Committee to recommend the imposition of a rate upon land values, it is the intention of the Government to proceed with the policy known as the taxation of land values, with a view to raising the revenue required for the whole or part of the local services of the country?


The Report is now under consideration. As regards the latter part of the question, my right hon. Friend is not yet in a position to add anything to his previous statements on the matter.
