To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will place in the Library a copy of the Valuation Office Agency’s guidance note Best Practice in the Use of Digital Photography. (176379)

The Agency’s best practice guide in the use of digital photography is internal technical instructions on use of the Agency’s digital photography application and how, when and where to store digital photographs on the Agency's central database to ensure overall system performance is not affected. It is not appropriate to place these documents in the Library.

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many photographs of non-domestic properties are stored in the Valuation Office Agency’s digital photography application. (176380)
