HC Deb 23 July 1929 vol 230 cc1062-3
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?


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.


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?


Is it not a fact that the Treasury have already received representations about this case, in the last few days?


Will the Government at least be more sympathetic than the last Government?

The following is the reply:

Number of promotions to the established General and Departmental Clerical Classes from 1st January, 1929, to 30th June, 1929:
