§ MR. BELL (Derby)
To ask the President of the Board of Trade when does he propose to appoint the second additional sub-inspector of railways which he promised last year, and for whom salary is charged in the Estimates.
(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) The existing staff is fully equal to dealing with the current work, and the necessity for the appointment of the additional sub-inspector, for whom provision is made in the Estimates, has not yet arisen. I am watching the development of the work, and shall make an appointment as soon as additional staff is required.
