asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the official side of the Civil Service National Whitley Council Subcommittee, dealing with the case of the writing assistants, has declined to approve a suggested overriding minimum of 55s. per week on the ground that it is too high; whether the Treasury themselves have made any alternative proposal of an increase; and whether there is any possibility of an understanding being reached as to the extra remuneration of this poorly-paid class?

As explained in Debate yesterday, this question is still under consideration, and every reasonable effort will be made to reach a settlement.
§ Mr. HARDIE
