52. Sir F. HALL
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the number of promotions made in each Department from the P-class to established clerical grade under Clause 6 of the Government memorandum of 12th January, 1925, for the period 1st January, 1929, to 30th June, 1929; and the number of writing assistants promoted to established clerical grade in each Department for the same period?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
As the reply to the hon. and gallant Member's question contains a number of figures, I propose with his permission to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
Sir F. HALL
Will the sympathy of the Government be extended to these men of the P-class so as to give them as many opportunities of improving their position as possible?
