§ MR. NORWOOD
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the scheme for the reorganization of the Out-port Customs Clerical Staff, which it is understood was submitted to the Treasury in September last, has received final consideration; if not, when may the decision be expected to be arrived at?
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, If the exceptions taken by the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Customs to the scheme issued by the Lords of the Treasury for the reorganization of the Clerical Branch of the Customs Out-ports, referred to in the Secretary to the Treasury's answer to the honourable Member for West Cheshire of date 11th February, have 811 yet been considered by their Lordships; I and, whether the scheme will be issued before the dissolution of Parliament.
§ SIR HENRY SELWIN-IBBETSON
Sir, a letter was written from the Treasury to the Board of Customs on the 6th instant, which finally disposes of all points of difference between the two Boards in regard to the scheme for reorganization of the Out-port Customs Clerical Staff. The scheme will be brought into operation forthwith.
