§ MR. BUCHANAN (Edinburgh, W.)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he can now state the decision as to which he has arrived on the extension of the Horse and Wheel Taxes to Scotland?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
I think it would be more satisfactory that hon. Members who take an interest in Scotland should see the Bill first, which I hope will be in their hands on Wednesday morning. It will also be interesting to them that they should see what we propose with regard to the distribution of the tax, which may, perhaps, I think, have some influence with them as to whether they will want it or not for Scotland this year.
§ MR. PRESTON BRUCE (Fifeshire, W.)
asked, whether the right hon. 894 Gentleman could now state when the scheme of the distribution of funds in aid of local taxation in Scotland would be submitted?
