§ Sir JAMES YOXALL
asked what amount of revenue was raised by direct taxation in the State of Guernsey during the financial year last completed and reported on, and what proportion that amount bears to the whole revenue of the State of Guernsey during the same period; if any provision for public education in continuation and technical schools is made out of the revenue of the State of Guernsey; and upon what conditions, broadly stated, the franchise is attainable in the State of Guernsey?
§ Mr. McKENNA
I am informed by the Guernsey authorities that the answer to this question is as follows: The amount raised by the State of Guernsey by direct 1675W taxation in 1910 was £5,914, approximately one-seventh of the whole revenue of the State that year. This does not include the proceeds of a tax on capital, which are devoted to certain parochial purposes. Provision for public education in continuation and technical schools is made out of the revenue of the State to the extent of £300 per annum. The franchise is attainable by all who pay taxes on a capital of not less than £25.
