To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, seeing that on the recent reorganisation of the Exchequer and Audit Department several Second Division clerks with longer service than Messrs. Dixon and Robinson were sent back to the Civil Service Commission as being redundant, he will explain why Messrs. Dixon and Robinson were not similarly sent back as being redundant.
( Answered by Mr. Runciman.) I beg to refer the hon. Member to my reply of the 6th instant,† which explains the position of these two officers. It will be apparent that no question as to their being redundant arises.
