HC Deb 13 March 1913 vol 50 c429W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that, owing to the amalgamation of the Customs and Excise Departments, officers of Excise origin who, under the old conditions of service, would by now have been promoted to supervisorships, are suffering financial loss without any immediate compensation, he can yet state the approximate date of the next examination for surveyorships in the amalgamated service; and, if not, whether steps will be taken to hasten in any way the promotion of the officers concerned?


The date of the first examination for surveyorships in the amalgamated service cannot yet be definitely stated, but the Board of Customs and Excise anticipate that it will be possible to hold an examination about the end of the present year.
