Does not the hon. Gentleman realise that if a proof reader in a private firm made such puerile mistakes, he would get the sack; and why does he not make an example of these proof readers? What was the cost to the public of this error?
I scarcely think that that is fair. Two junior officers, in checking a very long and complicated schedule, omitted to observe in two cases that "licence" was spelt "linseed" and "make" spelt "cake." That is not an error which demands any such drastic action as the hon. Member suggests.
