§ MR. PIM
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, When the improved scale for the salaries of the Dublin Customs Clerks will be issued, the London Customs classification having been finally settled by Treasury Minutes of 8th of March and 8th of May; and, whether the new scale of salaries will be retrospective from the 1st of April, 1869, as in the case of the Customs Clerks in London; and, if so, when the arrears will be paid?
§ MR. BAXTER
Sir, since the final settlement of the new classification for the London Custom House, the Treasury has had under consideration the case of Liverpool, and the proposed scale for that port will be issued in a few days. No Report has yet been received on the Dublin establishment, and therefore I am not yet in a position to answer the Questions of my hon. Friend.
