HC Deb 14 May 1868 vol 192 c247

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, Why the First Clerk in the Customs at Dublin should have a salary of only £400 a-year, his Collector's salary being £1,000, when the First Clerk at Glasgow had a salary of £450, although his Collector's salary was only £800?


replied, that the hon. Member was misinformed as to the salaries of those officers. The establishment at Dublin and that at Glasgow were in precisely the same classification as regarded the salaries of the clerks. The Chief Clerk at each place had a salary of £350, rising by annual increments to £400. It was true that the Collector at Dublin had a higher salary than the Collector at Glasgow, because he was a sort of Surveyor General in Ireland.
