HC Deb 16 August 1883 vol 283 cc746-7

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Whether a Memorial, signed by 100 Collectors of Customs, sent into the Treasury so long ago as November 1880, is still unanswered; and, if so, what is the cause of the delay?


Sir, the Memorial was acknowledged at the time; but since then there have been such alterations in the organization of the Service as to make it inapplicable to the present situation. The case of each collectorate has been, and is being considered separately.
