§ *MR. C. NICHOLSON (Yorkshire, W.R., Doncaster)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the fact that Mr. Smith, the clerk to the Land Tax Commissioners of Doncaster, has declined to send a notification of the appointment of Mr. Mark Dowson as Land Tax Commissioner to him, although Mr. Dowson has been duly appointed under the Act of last session and his name has appeared in the London Gazette; and what steps he proposes to take in order to enforce the carrying out of Section 1 of the said Act.
§ MR. RUNCIMAN
Section 1 of the Act of last session does not direct clerks to Land Tax Commissioners to send to each Commissioner a notification of his appointment. It has, however, been the practice of the clerks for many years to send such notifications, and I cannot understand why an exception should have been made in this case. If my hon. friend wishes I will call the attention of the Commissioners for the district to the matter.
