§ MR. LAWSON (St. Pancras, W.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can state why it is impossible to include the clerks employed in Her Majesty's prisons in the new Second Division scheme, as recommended by the Royal Commission on Civil Establishments, and adopted by the Treasury Minute?
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
No new scheme for the prisons clerks has as yet, so far as I can understand, been promulgated, and I cannot, therefore, undertake to answer the hon. Gentleman's question.
