§ MR. CLAUDE HAY (Shoreditch, Hoxton)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the Treasury Letter of the 8th May, granting eighteen days annual leave to abstractors of the new class after ten years service applies to abstractors of the old class; and, if so, whether he will take steps to have this concession communicated to those departments where abstractors of the old class have hitherto been given only fourteen days.
(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) The concession referred to by my hon. friend is applicable in the case of abstractors of the old class, and heads of departments have been so informed.
