THE LAND iN RECONSTRUCTION. I The English League for the Taxation of Land Values has sent to the Prime Minister and other political leaders a letter which is practically a manifesto on the whole land question in this country. The manifesto challenges at once the slow, cumbrous, uncertain, and COSvy-, action of Bureaucratic Controllers, and points out that the only hope for relief from the terrible pressure of post-war taxation lies in the people being given full access to the land, and that this question lies at the very root of reconstruction." The allotment-holder, no longer denied access to a patch of land, saved the country from being starved by the U-boats," and he is now asking for an extension of the liberty to satisfy the national needs. The land can be opened up to labour by a method which will impose no new burden on the public funds, and .involve no new ex- tensions of bureaucratic interference with the liberties of the people-the taxation and rating of Land Values." Bring the land into use is the keynote of the manifesto which is a valuable contri- bution to the literature before the voters. A copy of it will be sent free to any reader who will forward his name and address to the Secretary of the League, at 376 and 377, Strand, London, W.C. 2.
