HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c103W
72. Mr. Black

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how far his concession in Estate Duty, house valuation, announced by the then Chancellor of the Exchequer on 18th May, 1944, is still in force; the number of claims to the concession made since 18th May, 1944, up to the nearest convenient date; and, of such claims, how many were granted and how many refused.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The concession as regards the valuation of house property for Estate Duty purposes to which my hon. Friend refers is still fully in force.

I regret that the information for which he asks in the last two parts of his Question is not available and could not be obtained without a disproportionate expenditure of time and labour.
