§ 50. Mr. BOOTH
asked the Prime Minister if his attention has been called to the Clerks of Sessions (Scotland) Bill introduced by the Lord Advocate; and whether, in view of the fact that this is the only Bill introduced into this Parliament which reduces the number of officials and thereby effects a saving to the public Exchequer, he will grant facilities for its speedy passage throught his House?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I can give no pledge on the subject, but I understand the Bill is uncontroversial.
§ Mr. MITCHELL-THOMSON
As the number of officials has been increased since 1908 by over 4,000, will this Bill reduce them by one?
