§ MR ARTHUR O'CONNOR (Donegal, E.)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, with reference to his statement that the case of the Civil Service Writers was under the consideration of the Treasury, Whether any decision has yet been arrived at with regard to it; and when it is likely to be settled?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER) (Wolverhampton, E.)
The question of the Civil Service Writers has been referred to a Departmental Committee, who have under their consideration all the schemes which have been suggested with respect to this rather complicated question. I can assure the hon. Member that no time is being lost by that Committee in bringing the matter to a settlement.
§ MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the Minutes in respect to the Lower Division Clerks and the Civil Service Writers will be issued before the Dissolution?
§ MR. HENRY H. FOWLER
As regards the Civil Service writers, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I have just given to the hon. Member for East Donegal. The consideration of the case of the Lower Division clerks is more advanced, and I hope to lay proposals on the subject before the Chancellor of the Exchequer for his approval very shortly. When the scheme has received his sanction it will be embodied in a Minute; but there is no possibility of that being done before the Dissolution.
