Sir GILBERT PARKER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Lords Commissioners have now considered the recommendations of the Committee on the Customs waterguard service and the Customs watchers relating to launchmen, as submitted in Section 14 of the Report; and, if so, what is their decision?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
It has not yet been possible to arrive at a decision on the recommendations of the Committee relating to the pay and pensions of launchmen which involve certain considerations not confined to the Customs Department. The remaining recommendations of the Committee relating to launchmen have been approved.
