asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the approximate total acreage of what he calls amenity lands, which are to be subject to assessment under Schedule B at only one-third of their annual value; and what is the approximate average annual value per acre as assessed under Schedule A of those lands?

Mr. YOUNG:

The approximate annual value, as assessed under Schedule A, of lands in Great Britain and Northern Ireland not occupied solely or mainly for purposes of husbandry, which it is now proposed to charge under Schedule B at one-third of their annual value, is £1,750,000. I regret I have no particulars of the acreage of these lands.
