§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what consideration has been given to the position of assessors of taxes appointed as a result of the centralisation of collections on 1st November, 1936, who have held their appointments for just under 10 years and are therefore ineligible by a few months for compensation under Clause 53 of the Finance (No. 2) Bill, 1946.
§ Mr. Dalton
The centralisation of the Collection Service took place from 1929 to 1936. Only 15 out of the present total 249W of 155 assessors were appointed at the time referred to, and I see no reason to make any special concession in their favour.
