§ Lord ROBERT CECIL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state in how many towns it is proposed to establish branch offices of the Inland Revenue; and what will be the cost of doing so both in capital expenditure and in salaries?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
My right hon. Friend is not yet able to state in how many towns the offices in question will be established, but it is intended, as far as possible, to utilise the existing local stamping centres. It is not possible at present to say what additional expense will be incurred.
