§ MR. CLAUDE HAY
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any representation has been made to him by Inland Revenue officers as to the grievances from which they suffer in respect of their pay and conditions of service; and what steps he proposes to take to remove these grievances.
§ MR. ASQUITH
I have received such representations from Inland Revenue officers in various parts of the United 181 Kingdom; but I find in such facts as have been laid before me no sufficient reason for instituting any general inquiry or for revising the settlement which was made in 1894. It is of course open to officers who may regard themselves as having a grievance to submit their case for consideration through the Board of Inland Revenue.
