§ 2. Mr. REMER
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the overstaffing of his Department at Cornwall Road, off Waterloo Road; and whether he will consider the expedient of abolishing this staff altogether and leaving the work, as formerly, with the Public Trustee?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Robert Horne)
I am unable to identify the Department to which the hon. Member refers. No Department of the Board of Trade is doing work which was formerly performed by the Public Trustee.
§ Sir R. HORNE
Yes, we deal with enemy debts, but that work was not previously done by the Public Trustee.
