HC Deb 01 December 1964 vol 703 cc41-2W
52. Mr. Mitchell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps are being taken to expand the staff of the Basing- stoke district valuer's office so that it is adequate to deal with the many compensation cases arising out of the Town Expansion Scheme without undue delay.

Mr. MacDermot

Everything possible is being done, and will continue to be done, to deal expeditiously with these cases, but I cannot promise an early increase in the staff of the Basingstoke District Valuer's Office.
