asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether new staff have been engaged for the Land Tax Valuation Department, Maidstone office, since 1st November; and, if so, how many and on what terms are such personnel engaged?
One officer appointed before 1st November took up duty at Maidstone on 16th November and another, who was previously employed on other duties, has been transferred to land valuation work as from 3rd November. The rates of pay are in each case £4 17s. 6d. a week, and the appointments are terminable at a month's notice.
