HC Deb 22 March 1910 vol 15 cc1016-7W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware of the discontent amongst the clerical staff of the junior ranks in the Land Registry Office in relation to the constitution of the office and their pay and prospects; and whether His Majesty's Government will appoint a Departmental Committee to inquire into and report upon the constitution of the Land Registry Office, with especial relation to the pay and prospects of the clerks in the junior ranks of that office?

The ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir William Robson):

As this affects a legal Department, perhaps I may be permitted to answer the question. I am informed by the Lord Chancellor that he is not aware of the discontent among the junior staff of the Land Registry Office suggested in the question, and does not think there is any occasion for a Committee.
