§ MR. LAWSON (St. Pancras, W.)
asked the President of the Board of Trade, with reference to the undertaking given by him on the 5th July last, whether he has considered the desirability of issuing Civil Service certificates to all or any of the staff of the Chief Official Receiver in Bankruptcy; and, if so, whether he is prepared to communicate to the House his decision in the matter?
§ *THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Sir MICHAEL HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
The temporary arrangement relating to the office of the Chief Official Receiver in Bankruptcy, to which I referred in my reply to the hon. Member, will not expire until the 30th September next. Before that time I shall consider the position of his staff.
