§ 2. Mr. GERALD HURST
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that three officers of taxes (D. N. Kneath, A. L. Houghton, and T. R. Jones) have, by circular, addressed from 95, Belgrave Road, S.W., and dated 4th May, sought to persuade all officers of taxes in Government service to give the maximum support to the general strike and to pay a levy for its support, and, this circular being a breach of these men's duty as civil servants, if he will state what disciplinary action will be taken in the matter?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Ronald McNeill)
The matter referred to by my hon. and learned Friend, which raises serious issues, is engaging the attention of His Majesty's Government.
