HC Deb 23 March 1938 vol 333 c1208
66. Mr. Johnston

asked the Minister of Health whether he will give a statement showing the amount of local rates leviable per head of the population in a representative number of the larger cities in England and Wales for the year 1937?

Mr. Bernays

The statement entitled "Rates and Rateable Values in England and Wales" published annually by my Department shows for each county borough the average amount of the rates collected per head of population. The statement relating to the year 1937–38 will be published in the near future, and I would ask the right hon. Gentleman to be good enough to await its issue.

Mr. Johnston

May I ask, in view of possible discussion in Committee A, whether the figures are available for the year 1936?

Mr. Bernays

I will make inquiries.

Mr. H. G. Williams

Can the document be placed in the Vote Office?

Mr. Bernays

I will consult my right hon. Friend.
