§ Mr. MORRIS
asked the Minister of Transport whether the Secretary of the Irish Transport Office has recommended an official for promotion over fifty-five officers of senior service in the Irish Railway Clearing House; whether he will have inquiry made into the circumstances before this recommendation is ratified by the Irish Railway Clearing House Committee; and whether, in order to prevent similar practices in future, the secretary will be prohibited from making any appointment to that Department or revising the staff salaries?
§ Sir E. GEDDES
Promotions in the Irish Clearing House are purely a matter for that. body, and the Director-General o Transport (Ireland), to whom I presume my hon. Friend refers, has not made and does not propose to make any recommendations on the subject.
