§ Lieut.-Colonel CROFT
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he can announce the decision with regard to the writing assistants whose case was excluded from the purview of the Southborough Committee on the understanding that it would be fairly and expeditiously dealt with by a Whitley Council committee; and whether, in view of the reconsideration of wages in September, he can make an immediate announcement upon this subject?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I would refer to the reply which I gave on the 1st August to the hon. Member for Carlisle (Mr. Middleton).
