§ Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he can state the cause of the delay in issuing the order showing the sums payable to officers under paragraphs 168 to 171 of the Customs and Excise Amalgamation Committee's Report which was promised to the service in Customs General Order, No. 26, dated 18th August last; and whether he can state the approximate date when the order will be issued?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
The calculation of the new salaries and arrears has necessarily taken a considerable time, but it is hoped that the order will be issued shortly.
