§ 101. Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what steps have been taken to assimilate the organisation of the staff of the Public Trustee's Office to that of the General Civil Service; into what clerical classes it is proposed to grade the staff; and what instructions have been issued as regards placing the staff on a permanent and pensionable basis?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Acland)
Last December the Treasury intimated to the Lord Chancellor its approval of proposals to place the whole of the professional and clerical staff of the Public Trustee on the footing of Civil servants, subject to the 1144 exercise by the Civil Service Commissioners of their discretion as to the grant of Civil Service certificates. Appropriate gradings and scales of salary were approved for the professional staff, and the purely clerical staff are to be classified and to receive salaries on the lines adopted in the Civil Service in the case of staff clerks, second division clerks, assistant clerks and women clerks.
