§ SIR ALBERT ROLLIT (Islington, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury what steps are taken, if any, to ascertain the number of Second Division clerks who are eligible for promotion to the First Division; whether a list of such candidates is kept; and what measures are adopted for their promotion?
§ SIR JOHN HIBBERT
Every clerk after eight years' service is eligible, if specially recommended by the head of his Department, for promotion. The number of such clerks in each Department is known to its head, and it rests with him to make the special recommendation if he thinks it is warranted by the clerk's exceptional merits.
