§ 55. Sir JOHN SIMON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, seeing that the present assessment of premises containing fixed machinery under Schedule A is in practice based upon or arrived at in the light of the assessment made for Poor Law purposes, and that the assessment for Poor Law purposes in some unions is arrived at by taking into account ordinary trade machinery, whereas in other unions such machinery is not taken into account, he will say how are commissioners engaged in assessing property under Schedule A to secure a uniform standard of value for Schedule A throughout the country?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I would refer the right hon. Member to the reply which was given on this subject to the hon. Member for Deritend on the 14th June. I am sending him a copy of that reply.
