HC Deb 18 June 1891 vol 354 c782

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether complaints have reached him that considerable inconvenience has been caused to the conduct of business by the number of vacancies in the First Division of certain offices of the Inland Revenue Department, which have for some time remained unfilled; and what steps it is proposed to take to expedite the settlement of their respective establishments on a satisfactory basis?


I am aware that certain vacancies have occurred in the Legacy Duty Department of the Inland Revenue, and some questions connected with the organisation of that Department are before me, which I am endeavouring to settle.
