HC Deb 11 May 1908 vol 188 c736

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he can say if any, and how many, Irishmen applied for the position of Treasury Remembrancer, recently filled by an imported English official; whether he will give the names of the Irish applicants, and the departments to which they belong, their length of service, and positions in their several departments and whether he will explain in what respect or qualifications the English gentleman appointed is superior to the Irishmen rejected.


So far as I am aware, no Irishman applied for the appointment in question.
