§ Mr. R. Morgan
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware that negotiations for the rehousing of the Richmond tax office at 27–28, George Street, Richmond, Surrey, have been in progress for a year; and whether, in view of the serious loss of efficiency owing to the present conditions of overcrowding in the office, he will either take steps to see that these negotiations are brought to a satisfactory conclusion or find alternative accommodation?
§ Mr. Ramsbotham
Every effort has been made to bring the negotiations for new premises to a conclusion, but so far without success. I am reviewing the position with the object of deciding what further steps can be taken.
