THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

Mr. R. T. Gunton, I am informed, is Private Secretary to the Prime Minister, and no Vote for Mr. Gunton's salary has been obtained in the past, or will be asked for in the Estimates for the current year. He is employed, and paid privately, by the Marquess of Salisbury, and has been for some years with him.
