HC Deb 19 February 1884 vol 284 cc1341-2

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, How many out-door officers at the out-ports of Her Majesty's Customs who have been doing the duties of examining officers for periods ranging from ten to fourteen years, and who have performed those duties with efficiency and to the entire satisfaction of their superior officers, have not been yet promoted to the rank of examining officers; whether other out-door officers of only one-third their services, as also men in London with much less service, have been promoted over their heads; and, when their case would be taken into consideration?


This Question only appeared on the Paper this morning. The figures for which the hon. Member asks have to be collected from all the out-ports, and he will, therefore, not be surprised ifg I ask him to defer his Question for a week.
