HC Deb 05 August 1907 vol 179 c1544

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, by the terms of Treasury Minute, 24th March, 1891, the Surveyors General in the Customs Department were constituted a standing committee to be directly consulted by the Board in dealing with promotions to surveyorships and promotions within the grade of that rank; who are the officials now responsible for this duty; and whether the sanction of the Treasury was obtained for the alteration.


The Answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. The Board of Customs inform me that they have never failed to consult the Surveyors General with regard to the promotions mentioned in the Question.
