HC Deb 29 October 1919 vol 120 c718W

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?


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.
