HC Deb 13 February 1929 vol 225 cc443-4W
Brigadier-General CLIFTON BROWN

asked the hon. and gallant Member for Rye, as representing the Forestry Commissioners, what are the approximate average rating assessments under the 1925 Act on lands purchased or leased by the Forestry Commission for planting purposes in England and Wales; and what are they assessed at for sporting rights?


The assessments vary from 5d. to 4s. per acre, the average being about Is. 9d. On areas where the sporting rights are unlet the value is taken into account in estimating the annual value of the land. On areas where the sporting rights are let the tenants are assessed direct.
