A special Committee was appointed to consider the best openings for the future employment of these-officers, and I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the Report of this Committee. The Appointments Department is making every possible effort to find these officers alternative employment, and their claims will also he considered in connection with any vacancies in the Government service where legal knowledge is required. Owing, however, to the large reductions which have been, and are continuing to be, effected in the staffs of Government Departments generally, it has not yet been possible to appoint any of the officers to other suitable posts under the Government.
