HC Deb 11 March 1901 vol 90 c1165
MR. O'MALLEY (Galway, Connemara)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the fact that more than 100 examining officers of Customs will become redundant by the substitution of clerks for officers of this class in the Tea and Dry Goods Accounts Offices in the London Custom House, he will give an undertaking that the existing officers of the classes affected shall suffer no retardation of promotion as a result of the contemplated changes: and can he state what objection there is, if any, to inform the officers in advance of the exact measures which will be taken to safeguard their legitimate interests.


I regret that I am at present unable to add anything to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member on the 28th February.*The new arrangements will be communicated to the Customs Services as soon as they are finally settled.
