asked the Minister of Health whether a Committee of the Cabinet has been appointed upon the question of the valuation and rating of public utility undertakings; whether evidence is being taken; and, if so, what means have been adopted to obtain representative evidence on behalf of water, gas, electricity, tramways and light railways, hospitals, sewage disposal works and other public utility undertakings?
