§ Mr. Parker
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether any material progress has been made in, and what has hitherto been the result of, the informal discussions on the questions of an extension of the area of establishment in the Civil Service and of possible anomalies in the existing position which he informed the House in reply to a question on 14th June were started last November?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Colville
The discussions are still proceeding and I am not in a position to add to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member last June with regard to them.
