HC Deb 18 February 1948 vol 447 c1215
Mr. J. Edwards

I beg to move, in page 47, line 21, after "value," to insert: "for the time being."

This is a point of particular interest to the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton). I think that our drafting is all right, but to make it quite clear, the words "for the time being" are being put to make it possible in the assessment of current values for the valuer or valuation officers to make proposals for adjustment when the values vary.

Mr. Turton

I would have preferred my own words "at the time of valuation," but if the Minister is satisfied that these words convey that meaning, I express my gratitude.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
