HC Deb 05 May 1909 vol 4 cc1169-70W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much it is proposed to spend during the present financial year, in addition to our existing outlays, upon the institution of forestry schools, the purchase and preparation of land for afforestation, and the establishment of experimental forests upon a large scale?


As I stated yesterday, in reply to the hon. Member for the Oswestry Division, the details of my proposals under this head will be explained when the special legislation in connection with the Development Grant is laid before the House.


asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer by whom the pro- posed tax of a halfpenny in the pound on estimated capital value of land will be payable where land has been let on lease for a term of years at a fixed rent, and the estimated increase of capital value arises during the continuance of the lease?


I must refer the hon. Member to the answer which I have just given to the hon. Member for thee Oswestry Division.
