§ 66. Sir J. D. REES
asked what proportion of the local revenues in counties possessing deer forests is raised from rates levied upon such forests; and how the latter amount compares with the local revenue derived from rates levied on agricultural land?
§ Sir J. D. REES
Will the right hon. Gentleman endeavour to obtain the information? It is of some importance.
MARQUESS Of TULLIBARDINE
Could he not obtain it from the Chancellor of the Exchequer or the Member for Ross, who pretend to know all about it?
§ Viscount CASTLEREAGH
Does the right hon. Gentleman mean that there is no information available upon the subject of rates paid on deer forests, or does he mean that he is unwilling to give that information?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
No, I am not unwilling to give it; but if I can be convinced that it is worth the expense of compilation I am quite willing to give it, but I am not satisfied at present that it is worth the price.
Mr. F. HALL
If there were a memorial signed by 100 Members, would the right hon. Gentleman grant it?
