§ MR. JOHN WILSON (Falkirk Burghs)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department to give the names of the six inspectors of mines who are to receive an additional allowance of £100 each per annum, and the reasons for such addition to their annual salaries?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
The six allowances referred to have been assigned to Mr. Wardell, Dr. Foster, Mr. Hall, Mr. Scott, Mr. Martin, and Mr. Robson. In selecting the inspectors for the allowances I had regard to the special duties some of them perform, the specially large and difficult districts under the charge of others, and generally the length and value of the services they have rendered.
