HC Deb 28 June 1971 vol 820 cc30-1W
Mr. Simon Mahon

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the new Inland Revenue buildings in Bootle will be completed; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Amery

Because of continuing difficulties on the site I cannot say at this stage when building, which is now nearly 40 per cent. completed, will be finished. I am glad to say, however, that arrangements have been made by Inland Revenue for setting up the centre in temporary accommodation, and it is planned that the computer which has been installed in premises in Liverpool will begin taking on work in January next.
