HC Deb 01 July 1919 vol 117 c770
58. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, as it has been officially stated that the valuations of land specified in Section 25 of the Finance (1909-10) Act, 1910, have now been made over the whole surface land of Great Britain, subject to some trifling exceptions, and that the total values, which are the gross values less fixed charges and some other deductions, have been aggregated and amount to slightly more than £5,207,000,000, whether he will now give instructions that the gross values and the full site values, respectively, shall be similarly aggregated and their totals disclosed as soon as possible, or, if they have already been aggregated, whether he will state the aggregate amount of each of them, respectively?


The values referred to have not been aggregated, and the information asked for is not available. As a large proportion of the values ascertained are provisional, I am not prepared at the present time to give instructions for the carrying out of work of such magnitude.
