HC Deb 22 October 1918 vol 110 c620W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether substantial economies have been effected in the Edinburgh Register House by the use of typewriting instead of manuscript; and whether any portion of the saving has been, or will be, used to compensate clerks with long service at their credit for being thrown out of the only work for which they are fit?


Certain economies have been effected by the introduction of typing so far as it has gone. No clerks, however, have been thrown out of work. I can assure my hon. Friend that in any changes which may be made, the interests of the engrossing clerks will not be overlooked.
