§ 65. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he has received an application from the temporary and other women clerks in Government service to receive a deputation to ask him to consider as to granting the women clerks the same conditions as granted by the Southborough Committee to men and adopted by the Government; and will he be prepared to receive such a deputation?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. William Graham)
I have received a request for such a deputation from the Association of Women Clerks and Secretaries, and I have arranged for them to meet officers of the Treasury to discuss the claims in question. I understand the meeting is taking place to-day.
§ Lieut.-Colonel JAMES
Is the hon. Gentleman prepared to meet a similar deputation of ex-service civil servants?
§ Mr. GRAHAM
A deputation from them has been received already, and unless there be some fresh point, I am afraid I could not arrange for another deputation.
