§ 62. Mr. CROOKS
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether a petition presented by the watchmen of the Port of London to the Commissioners of Customs and Excise has been brought to his notice; and whether further consideration will be given to the possibility of making some concession to meet the increased cost of living to these men, whose standard rate is only 24s. a week?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Montagu)
A petition from the London watchers was received by the Board of Customs and Excise on the 27th June. It has been transmitted by them to the Treasury, and is now under consideration.
