Description

This series contains Solicitor-General's Office files relating to the Committee of Inquiry into Matters Concerning The Valuation of Lands In Queensland. The Committee was constituted by order in Council dated 19 January 1966 under the "Commission of Inquiry Acts 1950-1954" to make full and careful inquiry into various matters concerning the valuation of lands in Queensland. Members appointed included Mr Justice Martin Francis Hardie, Judge, NSW Supreme Court (Chairman), Mr D J Bingham, Commonwealth Institute of Valuers, Mr A H Forno, Mulgrave Shire Council Clerk and Mr C L Harris, Administration Officer, Department of Primary Industries as Secretary.

Matters inquired into include the jurisdictions of the Land Court, the Valuer-General and any other statutory authority to make valuations of land and the extent to which two or more of the jurisdictions overlap; whether valuations for the purpose of levying rates by local authorities should be made by valuers appointed by the local authority; whether jurisdiction to make land valuations under or for all purposes of all acts of Queensland should be vested in one and the same authority and if so, in what authority; what provision should be made for objections or appeals against land valuations; on what base should valuations be made, namely unimproved value, improved value or assessed annual value; and other matters such as the levying of land tax, the determination of rentals, the determination of purchasing price, the assessment of stamp duties, gift duties, succession, probate or administration or death duties and the assessment of compensation for compulsory acquisition.

Records include submissions, exhibits, briefs to counsel, correspondence and reports.
