HC Deb 07 July 1903 vol 124 cc1523-4
MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in regard to the clerical staff of the Agricultural Department, he will endeavour to obtain precise particulars respecting the nature and result of the representations to the Treasury, in the case of the gentlemen whose services range from nine to eleven years and whose salaries are still considerably under £100 a year, made at the time it was proposed to promote a tem- porary clerk with approximately two years service to a staff post with salary rising to £250 per annum.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The Department recommended that the salaries of two of the five clerks who had from nine to eleven years service, and whose remuneration at the time was under £100 a year, should be increased to £120, and that the increment of salary in the cases of the other three clerks should be increased to £5 a year. The first of these proposals was agreed to by the Treasury.
