§ 91. Mr. WATT
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether his Department has recently released for military service all clerks in the Inland Revenue Department up to twenty-eight years of age, while retaining as indispensable all surveyors and assistant surveyors; whether the average service of the last-named body is about three years, and in some cases does not exceed twelve months, having previously been in other occupations; and whether the clerks released for military service are at present instructing those assistant surveyors recently appointed how to do the work of tax surveying efficiently?
§ Mr. BALDWIN (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)
I may refer the hon. Member to my reply of the 6th ultimo to a question by the hon. Member for West Bradford on this subject. I am sending a copy of that reply to the hon. Member.
