HC Deb 15 March 1932 vol 263 c175
37. Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE

asked the Minister of Labour the reason for the delay in furnishing an answer to the points raised by the deputation from the Association of Ex-service Civil Servants on the 23rd July last concerning work returns and system of averages at the Claims and Record Office, Kew; and whether he will forward a reply to the points put forward by this association without further delay?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir Henry Betterton)

The points raised by this association have been receiving detailed examination along with other questions affecting the Claims and Record Office. There has inevitably been some delay, which I regret, in replying to the association, but I hope it may be possible shortly to do so.


Will the Minister consider the advisability of making a public reply, in order to save Members of this House considerable trouble and inconvenience?


Yes, Sir, certainly. If the question is repeated before the House rises, I shall hope to be able to give a detailed answer.
