§ Mr. DUNCAN
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is 1337W aware that the messengers employed at His Majesty's Land Registry are performing duties previously performed by the clerical staff; that this work is of a more responsible character than that normally performed by messengers; and whether, in view of the dissatisfaction which at present exists, he will inquire into the matter with a view to a discussion being initiated between the men's representatives and his Department with a view to a speedy settlement of the difficulty?
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave to him on the 17th March. The claim is a Departmental one, and I cannot agree that the matter should be reopened in the manner suggested by the hon. Member.
