§ Mr. BARNSTON
asked the Prime Minister whether His Majesty's Government can now give an assurance that it is their intention to extend the operation of the Agricultural Rates Act, 1905, which expires in December next?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
Yes, Sir, it is proposed to include the Agricultural Rates Act in the Schedule of the Expiring Laws Continuance Bill.
§ Mr. BYLES
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that if any relief be granted to agricultural ratepayers under the Agricultural Rates Act there would be a corresponding burden upon the urban ratepayers?
