HC Deb 10 December 1928 vol 223 c1721W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether it is within the competence of members of the writing assistant class under any section of the Reorganisation Report to authorise the expenditure of public moneys; and whether there is any limit to the sum of money the expenditure of which a writing assistant may authorise in a given case?


The authorisation of expenditure is not within the range of duties assigned by the Reorganisation Report to the writing assistant class though it would include comparison of signatures, checking of particulars, etc., in respect of claims on which issues are made.
