asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that one month's notice only is given to temporary valuers by the Board of Inland Revenue; whether he is aware that some of these valuers have been in the service of the Board of Inland Revenue for 10 years and over; that the Board in the year 1919 agreed to give at least three months' notice to these men; and whether, seeing that it is the usual practice in Government Departments to give at least three months' notice to valuers and professional men, he will give directions that this practice be followed in the case of those temporary valuers with whose services it is desired to dispense, and who are employed by the Board of Inland Revenue?
I would refer my hon. Friend to the replies given on the 31st ultimo and the 7th instant to the hon. and learned Member for Ealing (Sir H. Nield). I am sending my hon. Friend copies of those replies.
