HC Deb 08 June 1931 vol 253 c626
89. Major COLVILLE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what answer he has returned to the memorial addressed to him by representative bodies in Scotland, including the universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and St. Andrews, the governors of George Heriot's Trust, the Scottish Committee of the National Playing Fields Association, the Heart of Midlothian Football Club, and the Scottish Rugby Union, urging that exemption should be given to them from the proposed tax on land values?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Pethick-Lawrence)

The memorial has been acknowledged and is receiving careful consideration.


May I ask whether there is any responsible body of opinion in the country which has not protested against the proposed Land Value Tax?
