§ 36. Mr. CHARLES PRICE
asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether an Order has been issued to dismiss all tradesmen who are sixty years of age or over who are connected with the Office of Works in Edinburgh; and, if so, upon whose authority this has been done?
§ Mr. W. BENN
They are put to work suitable for them, if any is available. They are not employed by the Office of Works, but by private contractors.
