§ Commander BELLAIRS
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he can give the total local rates raised for Scotland for the current year, as compared with 1913–14?
§ Mr. MUNRO
The total amount of assessments collected in Scotland in 1913–14, excluding water and certain minor assessments, was £7,650,000. I have no precise information as to the assessments collected for the current year, but the estimated amount of the corresponding assessments imposed is £19,300,000.
