§ Sir C. CAYZER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that, by an Order in Council dated 28th January, 1929, the Saskatchewan legislature extended the provisions of Section 6 of their Succession Duty Act to Great Britain and that the entire law of that province with regard to succession duties was revised and consolidated in a Statute which came into force on 27th March last; whether it is his intention to reciprocate this action by issuing an Order in Council applying Section 20 of the Finance Act, 1894, to Saskatchewan; and, if so, when it is proposed to issue the necessary Order in Council, in view of the fact that British subjects are discouraged from investing their capital in Saskatchewan until reciprocity between that province and Great Britain with regard to succession duties has been arranged?
§ Mr. P. SNOWDEN
I am aware of the facts stated in the question. Subject to the clearing up of a small point of detail, I anticipate that it will be possible shortly to issue an Order in Council applying Section 20 of the Finance Act, 1894.
