§ Mr. WHELER
asked whether the valuers appointed on a temporary basis under the Finance Act, 1909–10, are required to give the whole of their time to the service of the Government?
§ Lord BALCARRES
Do we understand that mineral surveyors who acquire information of a confidential character by virtue of their Government appointment are entitled to take private practice as well?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
They are allowed to continue their private practice, but are not allowed to conduct any mineral valuation apart from those which are referred to them on behalf of the Government.
