HC Deb 13 April 1886 vol 304 c1436
MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether his attention has been called to the case of the Clerks in the local prisons, urging that the distinction between 1st and 2nd Class Clerks might be abolished, and one grade formed, with a revised scale of pay, and with a similar maximum to that attained by the Lower Division Clerks, and that Clerks in charge of stores might be formed into a grade of Third Class Storekeepers, with duty pay of £30 per annum; and, whether the inquiry now being instituted by the Treasury into the position of the Lower Division and other Civil Service Clerks includes the case of Clerks employed in local prisons?


The attention of the Treasury has not yet been directly called to the position of the clerks referred to; but I understand that the Secretary of State for the Home Department has received Memorials on the subject, and has referred them to a Departmental Committee, on which the Treasury is represented.
