§ MR. ALDEN (Middlesex, Tottenham)
To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he has any information as to the number of promotions of Ridley clerks in other Government offices; and, if so, whether, having regard to the fact that there are 113 such clerks at present serving in the Local Government Board, he will consider the advisability of making further promotions.
(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) I have received some information on this subject. As regards the latter part of the Question, I do not think I can add anything to the reply I gave my hon. friend on the 5th instant.†
