HC Deb 23 November 1917 vol 99 c1547W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Treasury has vetoed the Manx Estates Duties Bill which earmarked certain proposed duties primarily to a fund for establishing old age pensions in the Isle of Man, and whether he has received a remonstrance from the House of Keys on this subject, and will he state the reasons for the decision of the Treasury?


By the direction of His Majesty's Government a full Memorandum has been laid before the Tynwald Court by the Lieutenant-Governor explaining the reasons for their decision. I am sending a copy to the hon. Member.
