§ Dr. SHIELS
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether there is any intention of extending the time of service beyond the superannuation age of any present employés in the Sasine Department, Edinburgh; if so, on what grounds; and whether he is aware of the objections of the staff to any such extensions on the ground that they interfere with the normal settled system of promotion?
§ Major ELLIOT
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my right hon. Friend to a question by the hon. Member for the Edge Hill Division (Mr. Hayes) on the 19th instant, of which I am sending him a copy.
