HC Deb 29 July 1912 vol 41 cc1641-2W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the unofficial committee, of which Mr. Arthur Acland is chairman, will have access to information in possession of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, and acquired by them in the exercise of their powers and duties under Part I. of the Finance (1909–10) Act, 1910; and whether the council of the Surveyors' Institution will be asked to give evidence before the Committee?


With regard to the first part of the question, the position of the Committee is precisely the same as the position of any other unofficial body would be. As regards the second part, I am not aware of the intentions of the Committee; it is for them to determine the manner in which they may best achieve their object.
