HC Deb 01 April 1925 vol 182 cc1336-7W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is 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.
