§ Sir J. GILMOUR
If the hon. Member refers to staff in these grades on the establishment of the Scottish Office, the answer is "none." If, however, he has in view the various Departments in Edinburgh for which I am responsible, I could only give the information after an inquiry which would involve considerable trouble. The printed Estimates for 1929 will, of course, show the numbers of personnel in these grades in the various Departments so far as not paid out of lump-sum allowances.
