HC Deb 06 March 1919 vol 113 c624W
Lieutenant-Colonel WEIGALL

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will state the amount paid in salaries to the Inland Revenue Valuation Department between 1st January, 1913, and 1st January, 1919, and the amount that has been collected in Undeveloped Land Duty and Increment Duty during the same period?


The aggregate amount paid in salaries in the period in question to the staff of the Inland Revenue Valuation Office in connection with all the services which are performed by that Office was £2,392,000. I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy of a reply given by my predecessor on 2nd July last to my hon. Friend the Member for Oxford, in which the functions of that office are specified. The produce of the two duties which my hon. and gallant Friend selects for mention was during the period in question £336,000 for Undeveloped Land Duty and £431,000 for Increment Value Duty.
