§ 100. Mr. McENTEE
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that short-service temporary clerks employed by His Majesty's collector of taxes are discharged at the end of each 13 weeks and re-emrloyed after one week's unemployment; that their wages when employed are £2 13s. 4d. per week; and that they are debarred from drawing unemployment benefit for four weeks in each year when out of work; and whether he will take the necessary steps to abolish this system, so as to enable these employés to be regularly employed?
§ Mr. W. S. MORRISON
Steps have already been taken to discontinue the practice to which the hon. Member refers.
