§ COLONEL DALBIAC (Camberwell, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he could state how many assistant clerks or abstractors have been promoted to the Second Division under Clause 15 of the Order in Council of the 29th November, 1898; in what office have such promotions been made; and the number of men promoted in each case.
§ MR. HANBURY
The total number of assistant clerks or abstractors so promoted up to the 6th inst. is thirty-six. It would not be possible to state the numbers promoted in the respective offices within the usual limits of an answer, but I shall be happy to give the information privately to the hon. and gallant Member.
