MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN
On behalf of the hon. Member for the Northern Division of Dublin County, I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury 323 whether he is aware that there are at present assistant clerks (New Class) serving in various public departments in Dublin who have from eight to nine years established service in addition to several years temporary service, and who now, at the age of twenty-eight or twenty-nine years, are allowed a salary of only £80 per annum; and whether the case of those assistant clerks (New Class), who obtained no benefit whatever from the revised regulations promulgated by the Treasury two years ago, will receive special consideration in connection with the memorial now before the Treasury.
§ MR. VICTOR CAVENDISH
I have nothing to add to the Answer I gave to the hon. Member for the College Green Division of Dublin on this subject last Thursday, to which I would refer the hon. Member†.
