§ MR. MOLLOY
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether, with reference to his assurance that in connection with the general settlement of the staff every regard will be shown to the interests of the Second Division Clerks, he will reconsider all the recommendations which have been made by Heads of Departments, and have not been acted upon, since the issue of the Order in Council of the 21st of March, 1890, for the promotion of Second Division Clerks to the Higher Division, to staff posts, and to the upper grade of the Second Division?
SIR U. KAY-SHUTTLEWORTH
I am informed that no specific recommendations remain unanswered. The general question of the creation of staff appointments awaits the Report of the Committee which has been considering the normal clerical establishment of the Accountant General's Department. In the meantime, appointments from the Second Division have been made whenever this has appeared to be desirable in the interests of the Service.
