§ 7. Mr. LIDDALL
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is now in a position to make a statement in regard to the suggested differential rating 2986 scheme of the first Witham internal drainage district, especially in regard to the area in the city of Lincoln?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Elliot)
The differential rating Order made by the First Witham Internal Drainage Board on 1st July, 1935, has been confirmed by the Ministry to-day. The effect of this Order is that the portion of the drainage district which is included with the City of Lincoln, together with certain other small portions of the district, will in future pay drainage rates on the basis of 4/7ths of the full rate as payable by the rest of the district.
