HC Deb 24 July 1873 vol 217 c902

for Mr. OTWAY, asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, When and how he proposes to give effect to the promise he made on the 17th June last, that the Civil Service writers should receive special pay for special kinds of work, that certain holidays should be granted to all writers, that sick leave on medical certificate should be granted to writers without loss of pay, and that an allowance for travelling expenses should be made to writers when ordered away on duty by the Government?


Sir, the mode in which effect should be given to this undertaking is now under the examination of the 'Treasury and the Civil Service Commissioners, and it will very shortly be made known. I am not in a position to say more at present.
