HC Deb 09 July 1903 vol 125 cc144-5

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction for Ireland have on their clerical staff a number of Gentlemen with over eight years service, but whose rate of pay does not reach £100 a year, although persons of less official experience have within the past three years been employed for similar duties at salaries ranging between £100 and £350 per annum; and, if so, whether the disparity will receive the attention of the Department.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) In answer to this Question I would refer to my replies to the similar Questions by the hon. and learned Member for North Louth on the 28th May, 17th June, and 7th instant.†
