HC Deb 26 March 1975 vol 889 c176W
Mrs. Chalker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is satisfied with the number of district valuers available to work with local authorities.

Mr. Robert Sheldon,

pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 20th March 1975; Vol. 888, c. 523],gave the following information

The general shortage of professional valuers means that the manning of district valuers' offices is rather below the desirable level in places, and this does lead on occasion to more delay in clearing cases than we should like. If the hon. Member has any particular instance in mind. Per-haps she will write to me.
