§ The following question stood upon the. Order Paper in the name of Mr. MONTAGUE:
§ 63. To ask the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will explain why it is proposed to defer payment of the salaries of the Inland Revenue staff for the period ending 31st March, 1929, until after the Easter holidays when, in similar circumstances, last year the Department made arrangements to avoid the hardship occasioned by deferment by making the payment before the Easter holiday?
That is so. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, gave to the hon. Member for Rochdale (Mr. Kelly) on the 21st March. I am sending him a copy of that reply.
