§ 94. Mr. DUNCAN MILLAR
asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health whether, in view of the announcement of the proposals in regard to agricultural rating in England, he can state what policy is to be adopted in regard to Scotland; whether it is proposed to make an equivalent grant to Scotland; and, if so, of what amount?
97. Sir THOMAS HENDERSON
asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health whether he is in a position to state what is the reduction on agricultural rates proposed to be applied to Scotland, as there appears to be a good deal of misunderstanding on the point owing to the statement regarding the reduction from 50 per cent. to 25 per cent., the former of which figures does not at present apply to Scotland?
§ Captain ELLIOT
The arrangements to meet the case of Scotland in connection with the proposed reduction of agricultural rating are under consideration, and I am not in a position to make an announcement on the subject.
