HC Deb 12 April 1923 vol 162 c1303

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any members of the Surveyors' Institution have been asked to give the benefit of their views to the Government in regard to the Rating Bill; what other bodies it is intended to consult; and whether assessment committees and overseers will have any opportunity, either collectively or otherwise, of expressing their views, and, if so, at what stage?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Neville Chamberlain)

Yes, Sir. Various persons including some members of the Surveyors' Institution, have been informally consulted in regard to the Government's proposals for Valuation and Rating reform, and it is intended that all the principal associations of local and other authorities concerned should be given an opportunity of expressing their views at an early stage.
