HC Deb 13 June 1907 vol 175 c1596

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he can state on what grounds the service of the Secretary of the Board of Customs has been extended beyond the usual period.


The officer in question has been entrusted with the execution of a particular duty which is approaching completion, and it has been found that the transfer of the work to another officer who is necessarily less familiar with it would be attended with inconvenience.
