§ 38. Mr. KING
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that persons employed in the Land Valuation Department have received notice that their services will be no longer required, as further valuation work is to be suspended; whether this notice has been given by his authority or order; and, if so, whether the decision to suspend land valuation has been decided on since the Finance (No. 2) Bill was introduced?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, and the second and third parts do not arise. In view of the positive form in which my hon. Friend puts his question I should be glad if he would inform me on what statement or supposed facts his inquiry is founded.
