HC Deb 01 December 1936 vol 318 cc1038-9W
Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, when the Income Tax offices in Louth will be rehoused; what is the present state of the building; how long the present building has been reported unsatisfactory; and what is the cause of the delay?


(for the First Commissioner of Works): Arrangements have been made with a building lessor for the erection of a building to house the Inland Revenue staffs in Louth as soon as legal possession of the site has been obtained. It is hoped that the building will be ready for occupation within six months. The present premises have been unsatisfactory for a considerable time, but they will be maintained sufficiently to enable them to be occupied until the new premises are ready. The delay in starting building operations is due to legal difficulties connected with the acquisition of the site.
