HC Deb 19 July 1962 vol 663 c84W
Mr. Callaghan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to what extent the powers possessed by the Board of Inland Revenue to examine houses in order to find out if they have been converted into flats are exercised; whether he is satisfied that they are adequate for present purposes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. du Cann

Certain members of the Valuation Office of the Inland Revenue have powers to enter houses for valuation purposes, but not specifically for the purpose mentioned in the Question. I am satisfied that the existing powers are adequate.
