HC Deb 27 March 1911 vol 23 c1080W
Captain O'NEILL

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he will reconsider his proposal to set up the headquarters of the surveyorship of taxes. Income Tax Department, which is to be removed from Cookstown, county Tyrone, at Belfast instead of at Ballymena; and whether, seeing that there is already established at Belfast at least one such department, he will favourably consider the claims of Ballymena, which, in many respects, geographically and otherwise, would be a better centre than Belfast, and where the headquarters of this department were previously established?


I regret I do not feel able to accede to this suggestion.
