§ 75. Mr. J. F. GREEN
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to state the total proceeds of the carriage licences in Great Britain in the standard year 1909, giving the amounts derived from motor vehicles and horse-drawn vehicles, respectively; and whether he will state the sum paid in the year 1918–19 to local authorities out of the growing proceeds of the motor carriage licenses to make good the declining proceeds in respect of horse-drawn carriages, in accordance with the provisions of Section 88 of the Finance (1909–10) Act, 1910, as amended by Section 18 of the Revenue Act, 1911?
The total proceeds of carriage licences in 1908–9 were £600,956 5s. Separate figures are not available for motor-vehicles and horse-drawn vehicles. The proceeds of the duties in 1917–18 were less than the proceeds in the standard year in 26 cases, and the amount paid from the Consolidated Fund in 1918–19, in respect of these deficiencies, was £3,211 6s. 5d.
