HC Deb 02 March 1922 vol 151 cc553-4
43. Mr. ATKEY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many officials connected with the deceased Land Valuation Department are still retained in Govern- ment service; what are they doing; and what is the amount represented by their salaries, offices, and all other incidental expenditure?


The Valuation Office has wide and important Exchequer functions both for Revenue and other Government purposes; these functions are detailed in Command Paper 918 of 1920. The number of officials now employed, including clerks, is 889, or less than one-fifth of the pre-War complement. The cost for the current year is £550,000, but there will be a substantial reduction in 1922–23.


Is this all that is left of the Land Campaign of 1910?
