§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that there are still delays in the 14W Adjudication Section of the Stamp Office; and whether he will arrange to speed up the process for dealing with simple cases.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
Yes, but the situation is improving. More trained staff are now at work, and every effort is being made to eliminate the delays. Cases which can be identified as simple are given priority.
