§ Mr. FELL
asked the Secretary to the Treasury how many applications have been received for the position of valuers under the Finance Bill; and if any appointments have been made or considered?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hobhouse)
I am informed by the Board of Inland Revenue that they have received about 900 applications from land valuers. Pending the passing of the Finance Bill, no appointments under Part I. have been, or can be, made; but careful consideration is given to all applications received.
