HC Deb 15 November 1934 vol 293 c2146
57. Mr. WILMOT

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware that the premises occupied by His Majesty's inspector of taxes and staff at the Wood Green district, Tudor House, Station Road, N.22, mainly consist of a converted barn, with unsatisfactory ventilation and heating, and that there is serious overcrowding; and whether it is proposed to secure more satisfactory accommodation?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I am aware, however, that these premises are not entirely satisfactory for continued use as offices, and every effort is being made to secure improved accommodation. I should add that, from inquiries that have already been made, I anticipate considerable difficulties in obtaining alternative premises in the neighbourhood in the near future.


Will the right hon. Gentleman remember the urgency of finding suitable accommodation for the staff, in view of the fact that the accommodation is very unsuitable, whether it be a Tudor House or a converted barn?
