HC Deb 01 March 1967 vol 742 cc108-9W
Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is satisfied that assessors and valuation appeal courts will be able to complete their statutory duties this year with fairness and equity to appellants; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ross

I have just received representations from the Association of Lands Valuation Assessors in Scotland that the time during which valuation appeals must be disposed of should be extended. I intend now to ask the valuation appeal committees whether they expect to be able to dispose of all appeals by the due date, which is 15th April.
