HC Deb 16 June 1904 vol 136 c268
MR. ERNEST GRAY (West Ham, N.)

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the fact that the second class examining officers of Customs who entered the service in 1883, and whose case is now under the consideration of the Board of Customs, suffered retardation of promotion, the Lords of the Treasury will date the proposed compensation allowances from the completion of twenty years service.

(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) The matter is under consideration, but no further statement can be made at present.
