§ 26. Mr. WILLIAM ABRAHAM (Dublin, Harbour)
asked whether the initial salaries paid to temporary surveyors employed on revaluation in the Valuation Office, Dublin, has recently been reduced from £12 10s. to £8 a month;. and, if so, will he say if the Chief Commissioner considered the old remuneration excessive, although these surveyors get no subsistence allowance and. are changed from place to place, or on what grounds was the remuneration reduced, and what increase in salary does a, temporary surveyor get at present after six months' service?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
The surveyors employed at an initial salary of £12 10s. per month were engaged for a higher class of work, and were to be trained as valuers. The increase a temporary surveyor will receive at the end of six months' service will depend on the class of work on which he has been employed, and the manner in which he has carried it out.
