§ Mr. MIDDLETON
asked the Home Secretary the number of persons employed in the city of Carlisle under the State management scheme; the nature of the employment of such persons; their hours of work; the number who are employed in full-time occupation in the service of the State; whether any and, if so, how many are established civil servants; and whether there is any reason why all full-time servants employed by the State management scheme should not be placed upon the permanent establishment?
§ Mr. CLYNES
The number of persons employed in the city of Carlisle under the State management scheme is 573, of whom 425 are in full-time occupation. They are employed on the various duties incidental to the control and conduct of the brewery and the public-houses under State management. Their hours of work are the usual hours and vary according to the nature of their employment. One of these employés—the general manager-is an established civil servant. The hours of the clerical staff are about 45 per week. As at present advised, I do not contemplate making these employés civil servants in the full sense of the word, if that is the meaning of the last sentence of the question.
