§ 49. Mr. EMLYN-JONES
asked the Prime Minister how many municipal authorities have passed resolutions in favour of the rating and taxation of land values; and whether he will introduce legislation to give effect thereto?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I understand that since 1918 representations have been received from 17 borough councils in favour of the rating of land values. The Government has no intention of introducing legislation on the subject.
§ Mr. EMLYN-JONES
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that the rating of land values would give a great impetus to the building of houses?
