HC Deb 27 July 1916 vol 84 cc1876-7W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is with his knowledge and sanction that thousands of forms (V. O. 71) are being delivered to property owners by the Land Valuation Department; is he aware that in these forms the recipient is asked to sign and return a statement that he does not desire to take advantage of the existing undertaking to extend the time for giving notice of objection to valuations made by the Department for the duration of the War; and, seeing that this action is a breach of the spirit of the undertaking, will he say what steps he proposes to take?


My hon. Friend appears to be under a misapprehension; Form V. O. 71 is only issued in those cases where the owner or person interested in the land himself desires to obtain a settlement of the provisional valuation.
