HC Deb 12 July 1926 vol 198 c54W

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he will lay papers before the House giving information about the adoption of land value taxation in the cities of Pretoria and East London, Cape Province, which have now abolished all rates on improvements, and indicating to what extent the policy of local land value rating is in operation in the Transvaal, Natal, Orange Free Stare, and Cape Province?


I fear that I could not undertake to lay papers on this subject, but the Ordinances of the Provinces of the Union of South Africa relating to the matter may be seen in the Library. I am sending the hon. Member a list which may be of assistance to him.
