§ Mr. T. GRIFFITHS
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he has yet received a report on the subject of the promotion of a temporary clerk, with three weeks' service in the regional office at Dublin, to a grade 1 clerkship over the heads of other clerks of considerable length of service and with far more experience of the work of the Ministry?331W
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
The report has been received, and, as promised in the answer given to my hon. Friend's question of the 11th May, a communication has been addressed to him on the matter. The promotion was made solely on the ground of merit, in order to fill a vacancy in a grade 1 clerkship.
