§ Colonel IVOR PHILIPPS
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether he has received a petition on behalf of the labourers of the Ordnance Survey asking that the existing pension scheme accorded to the civil assistants of the Ordnance Survey might be extended to them; and, if so, when he expects to be in a position to give an answer to such a petition?
§ Sir E. STRACHEY
The petition mentioned was only received on 18th ult., and I am not at present in a position to say when an answer will be given to it. It is, however, under consideration.
