asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the scheme embodied in the Report of the Playfair Commission is to be applied to the Customs Establishment; and, if so, whether it is intended to offer any special terms to the older members of the Customs service to induce them to retire in order to facilitate the adoption of the scheme?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER,
in reply, said, he presumed that the hon. Gentleman referred to the indoor Customs. No scheme had been presented to the Treasury. If any scheme should be submitted, it would, of course, receive due consideration.
