§ Mr. Elliot
The rates of pay of the un-established messengers employed in my Department at Blackpool are in accord- 1133W ance with those agreed for provincial staffs of the Civil Service generally with representatives of the staff associations concerned in February, 1939. As regards the latter part of the Question I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer to the hon. Member for Rusholme on the 2nd April.
