HC Deb 15 July 1914 vol 64 c1899
29. Mr. HIGHAM

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has any Returns from South Australia giving the capital assessment of unimproved land values and the capital assessment of land with improvements later than the 1885 details given on page 126 of Cd. 4750 of 1909; if so, will he state for the latest year of which he has the information the total capital land value including improvements, the total capital land value without improvements, the population for that year, and the average amount of unimproved land value per head of the population for that year; and will he state whether the values so given include the land which is the property of the Government or other public authorities?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Harcourt)

No, Sir; I regret that I am not in possession of full information, but some information on the subject is contained in South Australian Parliamentary Papers, which will be placed in the Library of the House.


Is it possible for the right hon. Gentleman to write to Australia to get the exact details contained in the latest returns?


I will consider that.
