HC Deb 29 October 1919 vol 120 cc674-5W
Lieut.-Colonel WEIGALL

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in the event of a landowner replacing cottages unfit for habitation by new cottages, he is entitled to insert in his maintenance claim, under Section 69, of the Finance Act, 1910, the whole cost of the new cottages?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the second part of Sub-section (1) of Section 69 of the Finance (1909–10) Act, 1910, which sets out the conditions under which the cost of the replacement of cottages by a landowner is admissible in a maintenance claim. If my hon. Friend has any particular claim in mind I shall be glad to look into the matter if he will furnish me with particulars.
