HC Deb 03 August 1910 vol 19 c2719W
Captain COOPER

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether he proposed to obtain the particulars necessary to the valuation of the land in Ireland under The Finance (1910–10) Act, 1910, without calling upon the Estates Commissioners or Land Commission for information; and whether he would see that the work providing any information that may be required from these offices shall not cause any of the existing staff to be withdrawn from their present duties?


I beg to refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to a similar question put by him on the 28th ultimo.


asked whether, in the event of information or instructions in reference to valuations under Section 26 of The Finance (1909–10) Act, 1910, other than what are contained in Land Form 4 and the circular accompanying it, being required by land owners, agents, surveyors, and solicitors, application for such information or instructions should be addressed to the surveyors of taxes or to the Inland Revenue Office at Somerset House?


I should advise persons desiring additional information to enable them to fill up the forms of return to communicate with the valuer for the district in which the land is situated. His name and address can be obtained from the Land Valuation Officer to whom the completed return is to be sent.


asked whether the valuation forms now about to be issued to owners of land can be issued in duplicate, so that each owner may be able to retain a copy?


I beg to refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave yesterday to a question put by the hon. Member for South Wiltshire.
