§ MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, seeing that two junior and redundant Second Division clerks were retained, contrary to Treasury Minute, in the Colonial Audit Branch of the Exchequer and Audit Department on the recent reorganisation of the latter Department, and that certain Second Division clerks senior to these two were sent back to the Civil Service Commission as being redundant, he will explain the reasons, if any, for this procedure.
§ (Answered by MR. Runciman.) There was no contravention of any Treasury Minute in the selection of the two clerks referred to for employment in the Colonial Audit Branch of the Exchequer and Audit Department.
