HC Deb 29 November 1928 vol 223 cc604-5

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that strong representations are being made against the conditions of the offices of the Inland Revenue Department in Dundee as altogether out of date, overcrowded, and unsuitable for present purposes; that the percentage of sick leave granted to the staff in the Dundee offices, as shown by official records, hears out the contention that these offices are not up to the standard prevailing in Inland Revenue offices throughout the country; and that such standard is below that of ordinary commercial offices, and whether he will inquire into the matter?

Captain BOWYER (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. In reply to the first and fourth parts of the question, representations have been made to the First Commissioner of Works regarding the conditions in this office and inquiry into the matter is now proceeding. As regards the second and third parts, the answer is in the negative.


Being personally convinced of the facts stated in the question, may I ask the hon. and gallant Member if he will see that the matter is attended to straight away?

Captain BOWYER

Inquiry is now being made into the whole question.
