The aim of this paper is to propose a fully hierarchical organisation of valency information in Lexical Functional Grammar, inspired by recent LFG work on using templates to encode valency. The particular proposal rather closely follows FrameNet's inheritance hierarchy, makes heavy use of templates to encode multiple inheritance, and avoids the problem of multiple inheritance of semantic resources.
