49. EARL Of RONALDSHAY
asked if a vacancy has occurred in the junior clerks' 382 class in the statistical office of the Customs and Excise Department; and, if so, if such vacancy will be filled in accordance with the usual practice by promotion from the class of minor staff officers?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The Board of Customs and Excise, in filling the vacancy, will consider the qualifications of the minor staff clerks in conjunction with those of others.
