The Valuation Office has wide and important Exchequer functions both for Revenue and other Government purposes; these functions are detailed in Command Paper 918 of 1920. The number of officials now employed, including clerks, is 889, or less than one-fifth of the pre-War complement. The cost for the current year is £550,000, but there will be a substantial reduction in 1922–23.
