§ MR. H. J. WILSON (York, W.R., Holmfirth)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he will explain what is the object of the employment of two officials in the distribution and collection of tickets furnished to visitors to the Houses of Parliament on Saturdays; who are the officials so employed; and what is the amount of their remuneration?
§ MR. JACKSON
I am informed that only one official, namely, the Clerk in the Lord Great Chamberlain's office, is employed to distribute the tickets to visitors to the Houses of Parliament on public days. This duty he performs in addition to his other duties; his salary is £100 per annum.
