§ MR. P. M'DONALD (Sligo, N.)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he will lay upon the Table of the House a Return of the Staff of the Law Department of the Inland Revenue engaged in the Custom House, Dublin, giving the names, date of appointment, and present salary of each of the officials in that office; and, whether there 170 is any existing rule of the service as to the mode of promotion and retirement of the officers of long service?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
There will be no objection to furnishing the desired Return. Promotion is given by merit in the Law Department of the Inland Revenue, as in every other Department of the same Service. There is no rule as to the retirement of officers of long service in the Inland Revenue besides that governing retirements throughout the Civil Service.
