§ Mr. Owen
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware of the inconvenience caused to citizens of all classes in the Ashington area. Northumberland, who have to travel to Morpeth to visit the Income Tax office; whether he will consider either extending the hours during which this office is open to enable people to visit it outside 105W their working hours, or setting up an office in Ashington; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Sir E. Boyle
There have been few complains about the present arrangements in this area. It would be neither economic nor efficient to open an office in Ashington, but any taxpayer may ask for special arrangements for an interview at Morpeth if he is inconvenienced by the present office hours.
