§ MR. DIXON HARTLAND (Middlesex, Uxbridge)
asked whether there was any truth in the statement that some of the London Excise collectors' offices are to be abolished, and the duties of the clerks merged in the office of the Receiver General of Inland Revenue; and whether that arrangement would result in any economy?
§ *MR. W. H. SMITH
A scheme is under the consideration of the Board of Inland Revenue to transfer part of the work now done in the London collectors' offices to the Receiver General. Nothing is definitely settled; but economy is the object of the proposed arrangement.
