§ Mr. McENTEE
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury (1) the number of clerical officers appointed to £300-£400 higher clerical posts since January, 1920, and the number of clerical officers appointed to junior executive (£100-£400) posts in the same period, giving the number of appointments made in each of the Departments concerned:
(2) the number of ex-second division clerks appointed to higher clerical (£300-£400) posts since January, 1920, giving the number of appointments made in each of the Departments concerned?
The total numbers are approximately as follow for the period from and including the application of the re-organisation complements to the 15th April, 1924:
Appointments to higher clerical of second division clerks, etc., assimilated to the executive scale of pay 873 Appointments of clerical officers to higher clerical 278 to executive 49
These figures do not cover the General Post Office, for which figures are not yet available. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of a statement showing the distribution of the figures over the several Departments.
