HC Deb 13 May 1907 vol 174 c591

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered that a great amount of extra assistance will be required in income tax districts, considering that the extra work arising from the new Budget will commence at the same time as the heavy work entailed by the quinquennial re-valuation year in 1908; and will he state what steps he proposes to take.

(Answered by Mr. Asquith.) Yes, sir. The point has not escaped my attention, and, in view of the strain to which the officials will be subjected in initiating the new arrangements, I have decided to propose the postponement of the revaluation due in 1908 for one year.
