asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether it is proposed, having regard to the unsatisfactory accommodation for the Walsall third tax district, to adapt the old post office buildings,, which have recently been vacated, in order to house the whole of the Walsall tax districts?
§ Sir V. HENDERSON (for The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS)
The answer is in the affirmative. Steps have now been taken to make the necessary contract arrangements for the works of adaptation being carried out. The building will not be completely vacated by the Post Office until September next, and it is anticipated that the premises will be ready for reoccupation as tax offices within two months from that date.
