asked the Chief Secretary if he is aware that Mr. W. Henry, clerk in the office of the General Prisons Board, Dublin Castle, has been employed for the past seven years on Treasury class duties; will he say why he has been refused Treasury class treatment; and, seeing that his present duty is classed as executive, why has he been refused the executive grade?

This officer's rank is that of clerk in the Habitual Criminals Registry of the General Prisons Board. His scale of pay is equivalent to that of the junior clerical class, but owing to a decrease in the work of the Habitual Criminals Registry, he has been employed for several months on work in another branch of the office which is usually performed by an officer of the executive grade. It is not considered that this purely temporary arrangement would justify the creation of an additional executive post, and there is at present no vacancy in the executive establishment of the Department which would provide an opportunity of considering his qualifications for promotion.
