§ 37. Mr. T. KENNEDY
asked the Secretary for Scotland the gross rental or gross rateable value of all land in Scotland assessed as agricultural for purposes of local rates; and what was the total amount of rates paid in respect of that land, respectively, in the years 1913–14 and 1924–25?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The gross rental of subjects in Scotland assessed as agricultural was £5,663,958 in 1924–25 and approximately £5,700,000 in 1913–14. The total amount of rates paid in respect of that land in 1924–25 is estimated at £1,260,000. The corresponding amount for 1913–14 is not available, but the figure would probably be about £900,000.
