§ 36. Captain BRISCOE
asked the Minister of Agriculture what is the present position as regards the redemption of land tax on tithe rentcharge?
§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
The proposals set out in the White Paper presented to Parliament in February last provide for the issue to tithe-owners of an amount of stock determined by reference to the net amount of tithe rentcharge after deduction, inter alia, of land tax on the existing basis. It is the intention that the forthcoming legislation should provide for the issue of stock on this basis, and that the amount of stook to be issued to a tithe-owner should not be increased by reason of his having redeemed land tax after the issue of the White Paper.
