HC Deb 08 February 1934 vol 285 cc1304-5
76. Mr. GUY

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether steps have now been taken to carry out the staff reorganisation in the Register House, Edinburgh, and to recruit the additional staff necessary to cope with the arrears of work?


I am glad to say that a scheme of revision of the staff of the Register House, Edinburgh, has been agreed with the representatives of the staff and has been put into operation. Fifteen recruits to the second class of clerks have been entered as from the 1st January to fill vacancies and to provide additional assistance in the Record Office, and I am satisfied that with this increase of staff the arrears of work in the Sasines Office will be gradually overtaken and progress made in the task of renovating and classifying the older records in the basement of the Record Office.
